RELAY STARTER SWITCH

1996 Pontiac Grand Am

Electrical problem
1996 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 98,000 miles

Every time I start my car, the engine starts, but the starter keeps turning. I have to pop the hood and tap the starter relay switch. I bought a new relay switch, and it was slowly turning over, but it would turn over and not get stuck. Then after a month, it started getting stuck. I went and replaced the relay switch, and it gave me one start, and then wouldn't kick over again. It would just turn, but wouldn't start. So I would put the old one back in and it would start right up, but the switch would get stuck. The guy at the store said it was a wiring problem, and wasn't going to honor my lifetime warranty on the switch. What could the problem be?
