Default Starter issues

Hi there I have an 89 Ford Ranger XLT and I received it as a gift from my parents. With the truck came many issues and lately I've ran into another the starter is engaging but not spinning the flywheel. The starter will not spin at all it is only clicking when I turn the ignition. It was recently replaced so it is not too old I just want to get it fixed so I can have it up and running again for work

Was the starter bought brand new or from a junk yard.

If it was bough new take it back it is not working.

If its clicking, it is because the battery is dead. Thats the relay chattering due to low voltage.

Either the key cylinder is broken, or the relay is jammed on.
