Try putting it in second gear push it back and forth with the handbrake off and it should make the solonoid drop back into place and the motor should catch.

If that doesn't work clout the solonoid with a hammer then try, or bump start it !

See the old trciks still work.
Your solonoid had stuck, it was probably just the cold making it stick a dirty earth would cause it too.

Glad I could help.
