Sounds like they screwed up your wiring when they ripped the radio out. But, I do have a question. Have you started it? The reason I ask is that if the alarm was triggered and the battery is just about dead, those lights will stay on and not blink. Try reseting the alarm.

have you tried disconnecting the battery for 20 mins or so? resetting usually solves a lot of quirks

I see you have a 94'. The overhead console is where the remote sensor is located. Some wires could be crossed. And reseting the computer will do nothing if the alarm has been activated. That would be to easy a way to disable an alarm. Try locking and unlocking the passenger door with the key.

Did they snip the wires to the overhead console? I was thinking the exact same thing as pugulis the missing reciever may be fubaring the system.

Check the wires under the dash. When they yanked out the stereo, they could have messed some stuff up.
