Just my opinion, I'd want to see if cranking action is normal, without using the key. You can use a remote starter button, maybe the leads are long enough so your not under the vehicle. If the cranking still acts up, it's not the ignition. Maybe I misunderstood your post?
That purple wire at the starter solenoid S terminal, if it is hot should kick out the pinion gear. If it isn't hot, the pinion gear shouldn't kick out.
