When I start my car everything works great. As soon as I shift the car (automatic) into gear the radio stops, the power windows don't work, the windshield wipers don't work and the power steering goes out. My mechanic is stumped. Any ideas?

Does the car start up if you try starting it again?

It will start again, and the same problem happens. The engine runs fine, it just seems to be some type of electrical problem. It is the issue with the power steering that has me baffled.
