Trace wire from front left door to fuse box. It has probably been earthed to another location when installing the radio. It should trace back to the same place as the other doors. When you have your car on, your electrical circuits change from battery to ignition (alternator) power. Find the common connection for your doors interior lights and radio, make sure each one's positive leads is connected to the battery via a fuse or relay/fuse. Sounds complex, but once you get into it, it will be obvious. A test light is a very useful tool for autoeclectrical work, they are cheap and easy to use. Consider getting one for this job, if you havn't already got one.

If the radio has a security code you will have to insert the code for the radio to work.

put in the stock radio, does your car start, if it does then its the radio causing the problem, if not then more problems then the radio. if it does start with the stock radio in i would think the aftermarket radio is causing some kind of fault in the car, perhaps the radio is sending a faulty message in the i-bus telling the car not to start. i would jump out any bus wires so they are not routed through the aftermarket radio and see what happens. good luck.

Possibly has an electrical draw from the radio.
