Could be the ignition switch. Check other systems in the run (not accessory) position. If the windows, horn, turn signals, etc. all work (including blower) and then fail when you start the car, you might have a bad ign switch. Also, just for the sake of recent issues, check and clean the fuse. BTW, describe the strange noise...
