Checking voltage on the solenoid power wire is a good idea -- soon as you release the key the power should stop
I have seen solenoid cores bind up in cold weather -- did you pull the core and clean it off? (and bore)?
also any grease on the sliding parts needs to be light enough to not bind up in cold weather
In my defense, I was unsupervised

For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
