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.
