I'm assuming the key ignition switch has been replaced with a new one. If this didn't correct the problem then the problem could be in the STARTER RELAY stuck in the 'on' position, or in the STARTER SOLENOID switch (located on the starter motor ) stuck in the 'on' position.
The STARTER RELAY should be located around or in a POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX . After locating the STARTER RELAY and gaining access to it, try hooking your charger or jumper cables, whatever way you want to power the battery to make the starter turn over, then while the motor is turning over then pull the STARTER RELAY out and see if that stops it from turning.
If it does then the STARTER RELAY is probably at fault and needs to be relaced. It the motor continues to turn over then the problem is more than likely the STARTER SOLENOID sticking in the 'on' position, and will need to be replaced. That should take care of the starter problem.
Next will be the 'not starting problem'. That could be fuel delivery, spark plugs, coil or ignition control unit. Would be so much more helpful to include date and make of an appliance when seeking help.

SOURCE: I can't remember if you
Never do either!! You have to have some things in place before you apply electricity to a building(load) that is supplied by utility power first. First, you must have in line a way to open the normal utility circuit that supplies your building(load) first before you hook a generator up to your house/building first. If you don't you could very well injury or kill a lineman. That's not something you want to explain to an judge.If your not and electrician your have no right to be screwing around with something that is as deadly a electricity. But for you who will not listen this might be helpful and make it a little safer. Assuming you do not have a automatic transfer switch you must have a breaker in line from your utility meter to your building. This breaker will open the utility circuit to your building so that when you running your generator you are not back feeling the system. Again when I say a breaker in line from the utility supply to your building I mean a breaker that you can open that will prevent the flow of electricity from you the utility source to your building(load) not to main breaker in your breaker box. Once that is done ,how ever you hook you generator up to your building, you should land all wires from the generator to the building(load) first. Then open the main breaker on the generator which means turn it off. Then start the generator, let it run for a few minutes to warm up. Then you can close the main breaker on the generator, meaning turn it on. If you plug it in while to generators running and supplying electricity, and the electricity can flow to load after it is plugged in you risk being shocked and damaging equipment . If you start the generator with the generator all hooked up and ready to run your building(load) you risk damaging the generator and equipment in your building. Please have an electrican design and explain a safe system first.

Is this something you have done before, if you connect a generator to your home,
You must have a transfer switch to take your home from shore to generator power, or
You will damage your generator.
Also before connecting your generator to your home, check your generator voltage output,
If it is normal, depending on the generator outlet checked, it should be there when connecting to your home system
