According to the owner's manual - you need to shut off the ignition and wait about 10 minutes for the theft system to reset. It usually doesn't take a full ten minutes, in my experience, more like 5 minutes. My own online search about this indicates that this module can go out and leave you stranded - don't know about disconnecting it.

How does the bendix solenoid know when to retract so the gear will not grind in the flywheel?

When you turn the key all the way forward to start the vehicle, that not only turns your ignition system on, it also engages the starter and bendix drive. When you release the ignition switch, it returns to the position where the ignition is still hot, but the power to the side of the solenoid that engages the bendix drive is dead.
