Hello
i had a problem a couple of weeks ago and thought I had fixed it, but I was wrong.

the starter would continue to attempt to start the car with ignition off and the key out.
I replaced battery cables starter and solenoid on fender.
It is doing it again. I have unplugged the key ignition.
I do not know what is left. Thank you, Michael

The next time this happens, unplug the small red / blue wire on the starter solenoid. If it stops cranking, check for voltage on that wire.

Yes. It has a red / blue wire plugged onto it. Unplug that to see if the starter stops cranking. You can also shift to reverse or drive to interrupt the circuit.
