Check for a sticking starter relay and also inspect the flexplate

I'D SAY EITHER YOUR IGNITION SWITCH HAS A PROBLEM (HOW DO YOU MAKE IT STOP?)

OR MAYBE YOU NEED TO SHIM THE STARTER WITH SHIMS

The only way I have found to stop the problem is to disconnect the battery

I'D GO WITH RASMATAZ, UNLESS THIS ALL STARTED, AFTER DOING SOMETHING TO THE STARTER
