starter probs

i have an evo8. well my car has had some problems starting 4 a while know. at first it was an every now and then problem that my car would just click and not start but it only did it like once a month. well recently it did it every day i would have to jump it off then i could turn the key and it would start. so i went and bought a new starter and batt and it still does it sometimes. it will just click like its a relay or the starter. is there a relay under the hood 4 the starter or anything to do with the ignition?. iam running out of ideas please help

check wire to the S- terminal of your starter-may have a break somewhere causing intermittent issues. Make sure all of your connections to the starter are tight as well as the battery terminals.

In this instance it's almost always a problem with the grounding wire coming loose or having bad contact with the chasis. Check and make sure that's on a good clean surface before buying any more parts.

On my 8 it is in the relay box next to the battery, first row next to the battery at the front.

Don't forget to check the clutch switch, it is also in the circuit.
