Check your battery to starter connection B+ and check your grounds. Does the battery have a good charge? It is possible that the starter is bad again. Crawl under the car and gently ;) tap it with a hammer. I've had several bad remanufactured starters right out of the box (Advance Auto employee). I usually bench test new starters before selling to customers. Also, if it's a manual trans.....you can "pop start" the vehicle and drive it to any Advance Auto to have a starter test done. We have a mobile tester for parking lot diagnostics :thumb:....or bring the starter in to the store for a bench test.

Hey Where you at in missouri? Definitely would double check grounds, fully charge your battery and make sure its good, and try it again.
