Question about 1999 Plymouth Breeze
Check the power wiring running to the starter for exposed wire or loose insulation. I've run into the same thing on a few Chrysler vehicles where the insulation on the starter wire just melts off and blows fuses like crazy

I have the same problem on a Breeze 99
I change the starter but check wiring & voltage on the starter first

The earlier "fix" suggests a possible wiring problem -
more specifically, a historic issue with Chrysler products is the ground connections, which are typically insufficient.
Check both the battery to engine and then the engine to frame (firewall). If either are worn or frayed replace them. Even if it looks fine I would still replace the motor to frame cable with a heavy duty grounding strap available at most parts stores. ( doesn't have to be a specific cable - can even be homemade, just make sure it is heavier than the original and is connected to a good, bare area.)
