If all the electrics are working exept for the new starter you might want to check the wiring to the starter. One of mine used to start it self, espescially when windy. Turned out the had put the cables across the exhaust cusing the insulation to melt. somethimes the car wouldn't start either altough erveything else worked. Guy who sold this one to me had the starter changed by off. dealership that probably was in a hurry.
