If the car "thinks" it's in 3rd gear it won't start. To replace the factory radio in these cars the original radio must remain installed and pushed back inside the dash hidden from view. Then you need a jumper harness to keep the original radio plugged in as well as the new radio. Sounds like the problem is with the park/neutral range switch that's connected to the shifter.
