the suspected item is the starter relay, when they short, it allows current to flow to the starter.

While that may be the case, on my Escort it was the ignition switch - take apart the plastic covers on the steering column to get to it - you should then be able to disconnect the wiring harness and test the switch to see if current if flowing where it shouldn't be.

It is the ignition module in the steering column. It cost about $43. You can eliminate the starter relay by disconnecting the starter a listen for the click of the relay when you hook the battery back up. Just touch the wires and listen.
