Thank you for the VIN!
I suspect this no crank condition is caused by the new automatic shifter that was just installed. If the contacts inside the transmission park neutral position switch are not closed when trying to start the engine, the theft deterrent relay will not get a signal and wont send power down to the starter motor.
Your best bet would be to start by checking the starting circuit. You can check for power down at the starter, check for power into the theft relay and or check for power coming out of the park neutral position switch on the yellow wire with the key in the crank position.
I am going to send over an offer with my contact information. IF you would like a wiring diagram of the starting circuit, please accept my offer and email me.
