Firstly double check that the shift assembly you bought is exactly the same as the original.
The lockout on your shift assy. is electronically controlled (N15/5) so the first thing is to check that the control unit is plugged in and connected correctly.
I have attached two images of the unit. If you need the full wiring diagram let me know and I'll copy and store it.

Thanks Redliner, the shift assy is the correct one and I plugged in the control unit correctly.
Correct me if I'm wrong, from my understanding, the car should still be able to start no matter the connection of the shift assy.
I did not disconnect the battery before i changed the shift assy, someone mentioned maybe the neutral saftety switch might be damaged.
If the starter is locked out the car just will not start.
You mentioned the car was washed, did they also power wash the engine bay?
There is a module in the engine bay that houses the starter lock out switch and other control circuits.
I've included more diagrams where these sensitive circuits are housed. If the engine bay was washed check that they are dry.
With the N15/3 connector check pins 33 and 34 (resistance to ground) as in the 1.34 text.
Redliner, it seems I didn't give enough details. What i was saying about the wash was that, i took it to carwash where they spilled one of the fluid into the shift assy. That messed up the shifter, it was still driving and starting but was in leap mode, it wasn't changing gears automatic.
That was why i bought a new shift assy. So when I put this new shifter, then the car was not starting.
So i was thinking, even if the shifter i just putting in is messed up too at least the car should still start like the old shifter.
