2017 E150hp G2 HO suddenly stops

I bought my 2017 Starcraft 186 Titan and 2017 E150hp G2 HO in February of 2017 and have had zero problems untill yesterday. Currently have 205 hours. Wife and I were running in 2' Lake Erie chop at 24 mph(GPS) and suddenly alarm BEEPED, went off and engine died.  I automatically checked lanyard and appeared attatched so tried restart and np. After restart I got it back to plane and ran perfect until I was thinking about pulling the "lanyard" so I did and engine died again. Dont recall a BEEP. Restarted without lanyard and continued to destination.

I pulled the ignition -keyholder and can not figure out how to reattatch lanyard because the piece is threaded tubular plastic and no place is the diameter wide enough to slide the lanyard back on.  We put back together, layed lanyard on floor and had 2 others check this and neither understood the settup so we continued our 25 mile trip with no problems BUT WHY and HOW?

Being a perfectionist.LOL... I must figure this out before I lose any more hair.

Any advice?

Will try to post pic of lanyard. THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE.

It sounds like you have the older style keyswitch where the safety lanyard clips to the switch and physically turns the key to OFF when it is pulled.  If that is the case, see your dealer for a new style switch replacement that uses a separate safety lanyard switch.
