Unhappy Starting Problems

Hello guys, I got a 2001 PSD at work that has been driving me nuts. The problem I'm having is the starter turns over all by itself with the key in the off position. I have replaced the starter solinoid, key switch and ignition switch. Still doing the same thing. I then traced all wiring and looked for cracks and splits, nothing. I'm at the end of options here, anyone with an idea? Thanks Andy
