You have changed the alternator 2 times and battery 3 times, but the problem started after you replaced the starter if I read you correctly. Have you considered that perhaps the starter that you purchased is defective? I say this because you or whomever changed the part should have made sure that the wires were put back correctly. But check the wiring again, just in case.

Yeah I kinda was guessing that where can I get a good wiring diagram for the starter
