Hi EddieM, welcome to the forums!

@Goober and I responded in the other thread almost simultaneously... some general info was left there that can help you. We now need to know the year and model of your Honda though... and whether the solenoid you replaced is an OEM Honda part or not. Thanks!

EDIT: Didn't mean to step on ya Goober... twice I done it! LOL

sounds to me like your "new" solenoid is stuck open.
Actually stuck closed! LOL or you have it wired incorrectly. The small wire should get hot intermittently when the start button is held down and then not hot when not pressed.
Exactly! Hook power lead ONLY to solenoid. Test other post for power. If no power install trigger and ground, retest. If you have power with key off check trigger lead for power with key off. This lead is supplied power by key switch, after all intetupter safety switches are deactivated/activated as designed by manufacturer. Some use N/O and some use N/C and even combinations of both. I digress, if the trigger is powered when key off, it's time to look upstream for incorrectly attached wiring or defective delivery switches

Duh, power to other terminal on solenoid , with only power lead on, indicates defective (stuck closed lol) solenoid. Forgot to include that, my bad
