After cranking and with the engine running, the started continued to grind
Sounds like you starter solenoid went bad and kept the stater going.Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?Have you checked all the fuses?
Ford is always known for this kind of stuffs-drive pinion jamming on the flexplate-solenoid
solenoid is separate from starter for this model isn't it?
