    Xavious, I don't quite understand what doing that will do? Considering, even with the key out of the ignition the starter keeps trying to turn the engine over? The only way the engine quits (trying) is by disconnecting the negative wire.

I would replace the switch and possibly the tumbler if the key comes out while the vehicle is running.

No power to the solenoid on the starter

There is no relay for the starter motor.Disconnect the plug from a tumbler and just short the positive wire with starter motor one.If O.K. the problem is into ign.switch.If your VW have automatic gearbox-check parking switch on gear lever.

1998 Cavalier starter runs after switch is off removing starter relay stops starter I can put the relay back in and all is well until the next occurance

Your ignition switch is bad you'll have to replace it. It's the electrical ignition switch not the key tumbler one. Good luck.
