    Your starter is just responding to the electricity that is being sent to it. The starter might as well be a light bulb letting you know that the electrical circut is completed (closed) by turning on. The question is WHY is the electrictiy getting to the starter.

    You did not say why you got a starter relay in the first place. I am not a sparktrition, but from my perspective, I would check the wiring harness for any obvious breaks (short circuts) in the line, and would rethink that starter relay. Sometimes they stick in the closed postition.
