FORD THUNDERBIRD STARTER PROBLEM

1997 Ford Thunderbird • 180,000 miles

1997 4.6L Thunderbird-running fine until I changed out the brake peddle switch. Parked it & the next morning it won't start, just clicked at the turn of the key. Battery is good. Cleaned cables. But there is a toggle when car is running. Put a new starter on it, still just clicks. Tried to cross start it, starter was just spinning did not turn over at all. The solenoid also was fire hot after trying to start it. Could the new starter be bad. Do have any ideas. That was the smallest area to change out that starter underneath. Don't want to have to do that again, if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Vicki
