Mustang won't stop turning over!!

Car continues to turn over and tries to start even with the key out of the ignition

Hey, this isn't the first time that I've ran into this problem with the same car. In fact it is the fourth! So the third time it happened, ire placed everything I thought that it could be, battery ground wire, put new solenoids on it...on both the starter and engine bay. Also I replaced the starter. Also, I forgot what this tested but I remember doing it the second time: on the engine bay solenoid while the car kept trying to turn over, I took the one wire off with the boot that goes right over the bolt. And it continued to try to turn over. And since the third time, it's lasted a really long time. But then did it again. So since I replaced everything about a month or 2 ago, I'm quite sure I can rule those problems out. Any help is appreciated thanks.

I went through two NAPA fender-mount solenoids about a month apart that did this same thing. I purchased an OE solenoid from Ford(Cost as much as the two napa units that crapped out) and haven't had a problem since.

As long as the main(large) wire for the starter has to go through the fender solenoid, then that is the problem, unless the small terminals are getting power with the key off, then it could be your ignition switch.

Hope that helps!
