Mounted to the top of the starter
I have changed the starter relay at least 10 times. FinaLLY CHANGED THE STARTER> WORKED FOR AWHILE then the relay started sticking again and burned up another starter. First I thought it was residual magnetism keeping the coil in the relay energized. Then, contacted car quest about possible bad relays. Disconnected all voltage from relay, ignition and battery. The contacts were still in the closed position energizing the starter when positive from the battery was connected to the relay, no voltage from ignition, wire off. I suspect now the starter is pulling so much current it is melting the contacts together . So far I have not came up with a solution. Driving me nuts!!! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting change. Sounds like you need a professional diagnosis.
The solenoid is mounted on the starter.
Replace the starter

BEING A COMPLETE NOVICE, I FOUND MINE RIGHT WHERE YOU HEAR THE CLICKING NOISE UPON ATTEMPT TO START MY CAR. IT IS A LITTLE PLUG, ABOUT 1 NCH BY 1 INCH HOPE THIS HELPS
Under the passenger side rear of the engine, just follow the positive battery cable from the battery, it will lead you right to the starter.
Disconnect the Caprices battery. Remove the wires from the starter, then unbolt the unit. Pull the starter out, then put the new one in the hole. Bolt up the new starter, connect the wiring, then reconnect the battery.
use your eyes and brain,
No, all Caprices are rear drive
