How do I use the ignition?
The ignition has four stages: Off, Accessory, On, and Start. To use the ignition, insert your key into the slot, and rotate clockwise. When you first insert your key, it will be in the Off position. If you turn the ignition to Accessory, then some of the light electrical units will work, such as the radio. If you turn the ignition to On, then all of the electrical units will work. If you turn the car to Start, then the engine will turn on, and the car can be driven. Tip When you turn your ignition to the Start position, release the key as soon as you hear the engine turn on. The ignition will then automatically return to the On position.
