My 2019 Honda Recon ES ran fine till this winter. Now whenever the temp goes below freezing I turn the key, press ignition and it starts up, but the starter won't disengage. Turning the key off won't stop the engine or starter. The only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery. When I reconnect the battery the starter again engages without the power key being on. When the temperature warms above freezing I can then reconnect the battery and everything is okay.

I had the Recon into the Honda dealer for service, but they could not replicate the problem and would not do any repair--because the temperature was above freezing, of course.

Any thoughts???

Sounds like the starter solenoid is sticking closed. I recommend replacing with an OEM solenoid. Also inspect your starter button to make sure it’s not sticking. Spray with contact cleaner
