vehicle makes a loud grinding noise when i put it in park or neutral sometimes and now it won"t start but running ok when i parked it
2 concerns:

1) I went to start my vehicle and there was am odd electrical noise that comes on a few minutes after the vehicle shuts off. When I started it, the dash said the engine was draining. It seems to be coming from behind the radio/A.C. knob.

2) Additionally after I started it, the steering wheel was making a faint, but noticeable, grinding sound regardless of the direction I turned. I didn't get a notification about low power steering fluid, so what else could it be? Is there any chance these 2 problems are related, considering they began at the same time?

All summer I could turn on, nothing in speed two or three but four (full blast worked great and cold) now not blowing at all and makes whirring noise?
Sometimes 2010 Santa Fe will not start...there will be no sound at all and none of the usual dashboard light would come one, no sign of life whatsoever. Also, when this occurs, you will notice that the clock re-set back to the default time of 12:00am, as if the battery was disconnected for a moment. However, if I wait a bit, like 2-5 minutes, then it starts just fine. Also, I already had the vehicle computer checked for any recorded trouble codes...nothing was recorded.

- Cloud this be immobilizer or ignition issue, where one of these or both need to be replaced?
- If not, what else could this be?
- Also, could the reason for no trouble codes recorded in the computer, because these are also lost when this issue occurs?

Thank you in advance for any help.
