How do I use the ignition?

The ignition has four different settings: Off, Acc/Accessory, On/Run, and Start. When turned to Acc/Accessory, many of the electrical components in the car will work. When turned to On/Run, the car will turn on, but not the engine. When turned to Start, the engine will turn on. To use these settings, insert the key into the ignition, and rotate the key to the desired ignition setting.
