Had this radio for a while now and suddenly 4-5 months ago it started acting weird. when the card is in park or neutral the radio plays fine. When i put it in drive the sound cuts in/out until i take my foot off of the brake, then it plays fine. If i am driving it plays fine. Only when i am stopped at a light and have my foot on the brake do i have problems. Now i noticed that all the lights on the radio are fine when cutting in/out and it's not just when playing CDs, it's also when listening to AM and FM stations. Any help would be great!

Try holding the key in the crcnk position while you slowly move the shift lever from park to nuetral and back to park. If at any point the vehicle tries to start while you are doing this than its the nuetral safety switch. From your description it sounds like the nuetral safety is the problem.
gear selection cable might be out of adjustment. neutral safety switch acting up. possibly a defective ignition control module. they get flaky like that. work fine then all of a sudden they wont start 1nce or twice, then they work fine for months then dont work for a day or two.
You can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery terminals from the battery and touching them together for 60 seconds. This probably won't fix your problem.
Is the 'weird noise' the normal noise you hear when you crank a car over? If so, that's the starter. If you don't hear it, you have a starter issue. You may want to try holding the brake, turning the key on to the first click, pulling the shifter into neutral, and trying. Sometimes this works and indicates a failing park/neutral switch. If not that, put car back into park. Have someone gently tap the starter with a hammer while you crank the engine. Sometimes this will jar a dead starter into motion. In that case, change the starter.
i would say the fine grinding was when you put it in park the output shaft was turning and the parking paw was trying to engage into park then the paw engaged into park but you say it rolled i am thinking that your problem is in the transfercase
