My car tries to start when I hook up the battery with no keys in the ignition.
I realized it when I hooked up my brand new starter, I pulled out the starter relay and it still does it. It is hooked up
correctly. What could be wrong
Double check the positions of all the wires down by the starter. One of your wires is touching something it shouldn't. Pay attention to the proper routing of the positive (+) battery cable where it bolts up to the starter as well. HTH. -Jim

Stuck engaged bendix maybe
Brand new starter - i would suspect an wiring error. Sounds like battery power is going directly to feed the solenoid fire signal.
It was a remanufactured starter so I took it back and paid 20 extra dollars and go a brand new one that was slightly different and it works just fine. Now to fix or replace my injector problem
Thanks for letting us know! Glad the starter is fixed! - Jim
