When connecting battery after replacing starter solenoud and ignition switch, starter turns over when positive terminal is reconnected to battery.
I initially replaced solenoid when fully charged battery would not start car. Problem started
when battery was then reconnected.
Sounds like the new starter solenoid is shorted internally. Take it back and exchange it. I work at NAPA and, unfortunately defects do happen from time to time. Also check the wiring down by the starter. Make sure nothing is touching anything it shouldn't be. Same goes for the ignition switch. You could have got a defect. HTH. -Jim
