Please help

My parents have 2001 grand and yesterday my dad backs down the drive way heard some sort if grinding noise when he steps on the brake, then when it goes into drive but non of the lights or blinkers or radio worked, if you put it in park it makes another grinding noise. The lights do come back on in park. They go off when it's put in gear.
Any suggestions?

Check all your battery and ground cables at the battery, engine, body and starter to insure you dont have a lose connection.

Bad connections can cause all kinds of electronic issues, even cause the electronic transmission to go in 2 gears at once.

Ok so I resolved the issue, it was the starter shorting out, replaced it and works perfectly
