All good advice above, except you do not have to disconnect the wires from coil to check the "S" wire.... it's only energized when the key is in start and it's only function is to supply voltage to engage the soleniod etc.......

The "I" wire will get backfeed from the resistor wire to the coil etc...... but it's designed to provide 12v to the coil so that shouldn't be an issue, however if it's not disconnecting from the starter solenoid feed then...... it makes sense that that's where the 14 volts are coming from...

Try disconnecting the "I" wire from the coil and see if you are getting voltage on the wire with the key in start, then turn the key to run and it should go dead...... if it's not, check and make sure the ring terminal on the starter end of the wire isn't making contact with lg lug with the battery cable at the starter...... which I suspect is your issue.
