Something must not be right. Get a multimeter or 12 volt test light and start checking the wiring. Make sure the starter is good and connected right. Verify the crank wire at the starter, then work your way back to the ignition switch. 1990 starter should have a motor lead out, 12 + in from battery, and a smaller crank input. If your starter has a second smaller termial make sure your crank wire is connected to the right one. The 4th terminal is only used on older vehicles and I've seen newer bendix's on rebuilt/new starters with them.
