Was it running before battery went down or has it been sitting awhile?

Check the wiring at the starter. Sounds like when you changed the starter a wire either got hooked up wrong or is mispositioned and touching something metal. HTH. -Jim

caddy is famous for electrical problems, hopefully you hooked up the starter with the battery disconnected.
