For crying out loud stop throwing parts at the problem and think about it. How does the current get to the starter? Follow the positive battery cable, where does it end? Starter relay, ok, large cable from the starter relay goes to the starter... Ok, see the current path? What does a starter relay do? Contacts close via voltage from the ignition in start position to send current to the starter.
Here's the $64k question: Why would the starter relay send current to the starter if you weren't trying to start the car? (hint: you need to know something about how relays usually fail).

Starter was sticking on - would unstick if you hit the solenoid. Now the starter comes on while driving. Hitting the solenoid won't stop it - only disconnecting the battery. I've installed 5 new starters and 4 new solenoids in 6 months. Every starter is chewed up. Now the car won't start with a push (manual trans). I can't figure it out - maybe ignition switch or flywheel? ___________________________________________
A bad ignition switch can cause a starter solenoid to fail to disengage. A bad ignition switch can cause a starter solenoid to fail to stay disengaged. A bad ignition switch can cause an engine to fail to start when pushed.
Note: Check for flywheel gear damage before installing any more starters.
Good luck.
