Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1988 gmc 1/2 ton 2 wd wouldn't turn over so I took the starter off had it tested and
it was toast so installed new one still want turn over also noticed that with the starter off
the truck you hook up the power wire to the battery and its pulling power from somewhere
all wires are hooked up just like the old one am I having a switch problem or could the
park safety in the steering column be screwed ??

bad starter may have toasted the starter relay and possibly the fuse

If it is one of them why does it still draw power when I hook the battery up you can see a spark like something is on ?....thanks

The battery may have something else drawing on it.
