Does this have the 2.4 or 3.1 engine?Remove the starter relay if equipped and check the terminals in the socket. Usually there is only one spot hot, if 2 are hot, trace that wire back and find out why it's hot and most likely it's going to have something to do with the ignition switch and/or wiring.

Do you still need help with this? If so, you must tell me what engine is in it so I can lookup the wiring diagram for the starter.
