Default 05' PT cruiser 2.4T .. starter problem?

Hello! I have been trying to figure out what the heck went wrong with my car all week but i cant seem to find out what is the cause. A little background.. we changed out the valve cover gasket along with the spark plug due to the oil leaking into the spark plug cylinders. We had that changed and the car ran fine for about 2 weeks until last week. The car started to run rough and threw out (2) o2 sensor codes.

Now here where the problem comes in.. we were testing the coil wires making sure they were having good spark. Until we shut off the car and try to start the car again... nothing happen. So we thought maybe its the security system because we had the keys inside but the door locked its self. We had the windows down so it wasnt a problem. So i tried to reprogram the key with that 10min x 3 procedure and nothing. Turn the key... all power comes on but no cranking what so ever. The car was driving before all of this.

So we check an check to find out the starter relay went bad (we suppose). We got a new one.. and once we went to install it the starter... the car started cranking even when the key isnt turned. So we tested the power to the starter and now the starter has constant power. SO does anyone have a clue what is causing the starter to have constant power?
