The grinding noise could be caused by the ignition switch not turning all the way back to the "run" position, then engaging the starter while the vehicle is running. Can you tell where the grinding noise is coming from?

Sounds like u got 2 different issues. Identify noise and the other sounds like a wire might be shorting out
