Ive changed the ignition switch already. But where is the starter rely located? How do I know if it is bad in the process of looking at it?

Follow the battery positive cable going to the starter motor it will take you to the starter relay-

Try banging on it when the starter continues to crank the engine over-could be sticking

That is located underneath the steering column and is like a rectangle box that plugs in? If so that has been replaced to that is what is puzzling me.
