Could be a bad starter solenoid or perhaps the starter was wired wrong.

Thanks for quick response. Brand new starter. On initial install this issue started. Took back out had it bench tested and all good. Back in it went and still ongoing. Relay and some fuses removed still goes when hooked up.

No not possible. one is pin insert plug and play Other is a big stock end with a protection boot on it.
