Sounds like the gearchange friction bands or actuators are sticking, but the solution is probably to change the gearbox oil - maybe more than once - to clean up the gearbox. This can produce miracles, as all the sliding hydraulic actuators depend on it.

My 2 have always made that noise, I'm guessing it has something to do with the ABS charging in preparation for potential use. after a combined total of 240k miles, there has been no noted detrimental effect to this "charging" sound.

My guess is that you have either a bad contact in the wiring or the ECM detects a fault and prevents the engine from starting. The only way to know for sure (apart checking the entire wire loom starting with the key switch) is to have the error code read. Do that ASAP, running the engine with a fault can't be very good for it.
