It ran after battery replaced,then quit,then you replaced starter thinking it was the issue,all i can read in to this,is check that new starter,and if it is good,it will be the iginiton,why i think this is a bad igintion will eat the battery,which it did,and now that you have good battery power it went ahead and eat the switch.
