When I put the key in, the vehicle can start normally or it can start without me turning the key. When it starts it will leave the starter solenoid engaged. This is happening in all three positions of the key. I was just driving the vehicle, as I shifted through drive into neutral the solenoid re-engaged the starter. Ran a diagnostic it has shown the same codes since we got the vehicle for the torque converter.

I'm going to pull and test the relay. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Like I mentioned before a friend of mine, 40 years of experience had never seen anything like it. On board computer does not register a fault thank you
