Internal problems. Reverse uses more pressure to apply the clutches than forward clutches do.
Could be planetary gears, sprag, burned clutches, broken sealing rings or lip seals.
All these are internal so it will need to come apart

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

My 2004 chev cavaliers anti theft light and air bag lights came on and car wont start

Sounds like the anti theft sensor in the ignition keyhole. Squirt a little carb cleaner, brake cleaner or electronic parts cleaner in the keyhole. I then swab the deepest part of the keyhole with rolled up paper, very thinly like 1/4 inch tube crushed flat. The tip of the paper will have dirt on it. Repeat until no more dirt.

2004 pontiac grand prix reverse lights stay on while car is in drive?

This is can be a faulty reverse gear activation switch and can be confirmed if the lines to the reverse switch is removed or if the fault goes off when you are changing few times from the reverse to the first gear. If not check for short in the wiring harness or in the rear light assembly circuit.
You can disconnect the rear assembly and take a voltage check.
