It sounds to me like either the relay is stuck closed or your ignition switch has a problem. This is what I would do. After you start the car remove the starter relay. It is under the hood in the fuse and relay box. I have provided a diagram below. This will allow you to drive the car to your mechanic and not damage the starter.
According to my database, no generator relay, there are a couple of fuses for gen and fusible link for generator bat terminal. You could check battery amp draw with everything off. You may have to wait several minutes before testing.
There is no alternator relay . You more then likely have a resistance problem in the wiring for the alternator . Or bad ground . Check out this video on voltage drop testing . Voltage Drop Testing the Charging System Plus check battery cable connections .
Did you replace the starter yourself or have a garage do it? It sounds like the starter gear is not aligned properly with the ring gear on the engine. Sometimes a 'shim' is needed to make them align. Compare the old starter with the new one to see they are exact or is if a shim fell off when removing the old.
needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con
it is probably the starter assuming the engine isnt locked up. I would check to see if you have battery voltage at the starters solenoid wire with the key in the start position if you do i would check the fuses and starter relay
