    I must admit that you might be into something very useful.
    Now I see that owner's manuals for NCX, CTX and NC Integra give exactly the same advice:
    "If you still cannot start the engine: Start the engine while applying the front or rear brake lever."
    And, my mistake - PCM and ABS modulator really receive information about applied brakes.
    One (cooler) day I may experiment with that. It might be very helpful.

    Thanks all, hadn't looked at this post since the 2nd or third post. She had her friends Dad rock the bike with the key on and she said it went right to neutral and she started it right up. I am going to go over to her place tomorrow and kill it while in gear and see if the brake trick works on a 2012.

    The normal behavior is N when you turn ignition ON, whether it was shut down in N or in any gear.
    If the bike keeps having trouble getting to N at ignition ON, there is a problem and should be fixed sooner than later.

    I happened to have a requirement to use this override again, glad I remembered it.

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.

    I was told by a mechanic that
    1. this is a known issue on all Honda DCTs, including ATVs.
    2. It happens when the solenoid is weak
    3. The workarounds work, but with a new solenoid it does not happen.
    Not vouching for this. I have accidentally turned it off in gear several times without it happening.

    My money's on a very low or failed battery. The bike continually assesses the state of the battery and throws all sorts of hissy-fits when it's low. The front brake trick work if she's just hearing clicking. That's telling her that there's not enough juice to spin the starter.
