Sounds like you dont have the solenoid wires hooked up properly. Your starter (+) wire must be on Positive all the time. Or you have a faulty solenoid (yes I know it's brand new but its been known to happen)

If it's so easy, then why haven't you figured it out? :D (just messin :D :D)

Check for 12v+ at the red light blue wire, that goes to the solenoid. If it's powered all of the time with the key out, problem is most likely in the ignition switch.

If no power on R/LB and the starter still turns over when it's disconnected, either the solenoid wiring is wrong, or it's stuck. Simple to diagnose with a volt meter.

^this. between the two trucks i have owned i have put 3 starter solenoids on them. literally every time i had to do this, i went and bought a new one from advance auto parts or oreillys. somehow, all 3 times the first one i bought was bad.
