Ok if all of that happened when you put in the stereo you need to take it back out ASAP. Did you use an installation harness or did you cut off the factory plugs and hard wire it the hard way?

Sounds like you disturbed wiring for the trans while installing the stereo. The Oxygen sensor may be at the end of it's life. They usually have a very low voltage output (.3 to .9 VDC) and the precious metal (platinum) wire sometimes begins to fail causing the output to vary
