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

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.
