Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes what is happening and what you did so far. This may be one of two things either the main relay is sticking or the ignition switch is shorting out. You can pinpiont this by disconnecting one at a time.If you hook the battery back up and remove the key then remove one item at a time to see if that correects it. then replace that item .

Remove a part to see if it corrects it? How will my car start with one of these parts removed?
