How I change the engine switch position with the key?

The engine switch has four positions: Off, ACC, On, and Start. When you insert the key, the switch will automatically be in the Off position. Rotate the key clockwise one position to reach the ACC position, where some electrical components will be available. Rotate the key clockwise two positions to reach On, where all electrical components are available. Rotate the key clockwise three positions to reach Start, where the engine will be turned on.
