sound like a short in the harness if u pull the relay to starter underhood and starter still goin then i would follow harness from fuse box to starter and check for short ...the starter solenoid wire is usually purple on gm cars i would check that one because thats the 1 that energize the starter ...hope that helps.

Awesome that u so much my dad was attempting to do just that.
