Do you have a heat shield around the starter? if not, could be burning through solenoids with out

Duralast and carquest parts are notorious for out of box failure.spend the money and buy and buy OEM electronics. Just cause its new out of the box doesn'tean its any good. May want to check power supply to trigger wire on starter using a test light have a friend turn and hold key touch the small wire test light should illuminate if it does starter is junk,if not look for ignition,broken wire,or a starter interlock. Hope that helps

check the terminals 1st, check the battery, if they are fine, they maybe your starter is junk
