I going to do that take it back but I still would like to know what would cause that


Sounds like a wiring issue, they might have missed plugging in a connection or replacing a ground.

There is a neutral safety switch which only allows a car to crank in park or neutral. It sounds like a prime suspect, and probably needs adjustment or replacement. I would take it back to whoever worked on it and tell them you need a loaner until it's fixed.
