Talking Starter Siezed Up - Again

I am about to pull my hair out.........or beat the daylights out of my car. Neither of which I can afford. If any one would help I would greatly appreciate it - because this dang car isn't going to beat me!

The battery, cables and terminal ends are new. The crankshaft sensor and starter were replaced. The starter was wired up incorrectly twice and so the starter was replcaed three times.

The car ran great for about a month. I was out shopping yesterday third store and it won't start. Thought it was the battery - after buying cables (of course not in the car) and 3 attempts - not the battery. Banged on the starter and get a little then it siezed up.

On my previous post - Uptown said something about a plate being bent?

I know some one else said to check the wires from the alternator and others stated the wiring harness.

I assume the cables to check are the ones to the starter? I don't know beyond that.

At this point - I have a temporary job for some money but still need to try and fix this myself - since the starter was bought from the dealership I am going to have to remove it today and have them order a new one and put it back into the car. There is obviously something else going on and although I appreciate the ability to remove and replace the starter it isn't something I want to do everything month.

Thank you all and Merry Christmas!
