If they had doors open for extended periods of time the battery may be dead. Check battery voltage.

The doors were open but the battery was not connected they connected the battery back and the lights work but it won't start or shift

Ok I would still check voltage and battery connections just in case it's dead or connections are loose. Also if your model so equipped the changing of the radio could have set a theft mode. Might want to check your owners manual.

If you installed a after market radio,it has and antitheft divice in it,replace it and your car will run,then go find a qualified person to install your radio,with proper control module that has to be installed with your new radio.
