Is the battery dead from sitting for a while or did it just die overnight? I know you just had your truck repaired, I don't know when the last time it ran was though.

If it died overnight then you might need a new battery. If it just died from sitting a while you should be fine, you just need to let it charge for a few minutes.

My truck hasn't been run in over a month so when I went out to it the other day the battery had gone dead. I'm sure it will fire right back up after a charge though

Honestly I'm not sure. You can always take it to Autozone and get them to test the battery for you. Normally if it won't hold a charge for a few days its done.
