I would have to guess that you put the wires on the starter improperly, and they are either touching the engine block or each other. When you change starters you have to pay special attention to which way the wires are pointing, and which ones go where, or you may have moved them when you put it in. In any event, they have shorted out, and may have caused the solenoid to short, too. If not any of the above, your ignition switch on the steering column must be stuck. Good luck, and let me know how it goes.

there should be a relay switch on the passanger side in the floor board up to the firewall or look in the manual for it.... if your car wont start cause its starvin for gas it could be the fix...find the switch or button and press it it restarts your fuel sending unit

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Testimonial: "when i saw expert service i kinda laughed just another rip off but the guy knew his stuff very helpfull "
you must make sure the fuel is getting to motor, check the fuel preasure after it dies check preasure or try spraying starting fluid in throtlebody to see if it a fuel problem, if it doesnt start then check for spark at the plugs,the most common problems are fuelpumps or control modules going bad,

Did the inertia switch get triggered again? On the side panel, down behind the hood-release, there is an access hole in the panel. (1.5in diameter?) Inside you'll find the switch. It's a round button; that acts kind of like the ground default switch on an outlet. If you can push it in; it's been triggered again. If not; well it should be fine.
What triggered it the first time? If it was an accident; there may be further damage.
If that's good to go: I'd have to ask whether the fuel filter was changed at the same time. Sometimes they can clog with debris from burnt-out pump.
I had pump go out in my Mystique. It didn't trigger the inertia switch; but it did stop working two days later, as well. It turns out we messed up the plug connecting to the pump. That would be worth checking as well. You need to pull up the rear seat cushion. Where you'll find a rubber cap with a wiring harness protruding from it. Lift that up you'll find the plug underneath. Unplug it and perform a visual inspection. If it all looks good, well you'll need to begin more advanced diagnostics.
Then again, as cars go; it may not have been the pump to begin with, just a coincidence. Or something else has gone afoul. Dang cars!
