Hello and welcome to just answer I value your input to my questions so I can help you better. Can you locate where that buzzing sound is coming from?have someone turn the key so you can locate it. Have you checked all connections power and ground to the starter and from the battery ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I couldn't pinpoint the location of the buzzing. I haven't been able to recheck my connections on the starter either. My friend was the one who installed the new starter on the car. The noise I am hearing though is the same noise that was heard with the old starter in place

Aw thanx for that info, I will give you a diagram of the starter circuit as well as the starter relay location.
