How do I use the ignition?

Using the ignition is very simple: insert the key, and rotate clockwise. There are four levels on the ignition: 1. Lock. This is the starting position, where you can insert or remove the key anytime you use the ignition. 2. ACC. This position is one notch over from Lock. When the ignition is set to ACC, the accessories (such as the radio) can all be used. 3. On. This position is two notches over from Lock and is the position that the ignition will be in while you are driving. 4. Start. This position is reached if you turn the ignition all the way clockwise, and is used for starting the engine. When the engine starts, let go of the key, which will return to the On position.
