My starter motor keeps running after I take key out of the ignition and then I have to disconnect the battery to stop it. Connect battery and start and does it again.
Solenoid , starter or relays?

I recon solenoid sticking. Give it a couple of whacks with a hammer, if it doesn't latch next time you kick it you know you need to replace it. Relay next option. If the thing is engaging and spinning the motor itself is ok.

backfeed to yellow and black circuit from the coils perhaps

when the going is hard, don't retard, remember your lubrication

I had this from a sticky ignition barrell/switch. WD40 in the key slot, took apart the switch and cleaned up carbon deposits. Afterwards good as new and better voltage.
