“START” —Starter motor on. The key
will return to the “ON” position when
released.
For starting tips, see Part 3.
“ON” —Engine on and all accessories
on.
This is the normal driving position.
“ACC” - Accessories such as the ra-
dio operate, but the engine is off.
If you leave the key in the “ACC” or
“LOCK” position and open the driver’s
door, a buzzer will remind you to remove
the key.
“LOCK” —Engine is off and the steer-
ing wheel is locked.  The key can be re-
moved only at this position.
Vehicles with manual transmission—
You must push in the key to turn the key
from “ACC” to the “LOCK” position.
Vehicles with automatic transmission—
You must shift the selector lever into the
“P” position before turning the key from
“ACC” to the “LOCK” position.
When starting the engine, the key may
seem stuck at the “LOCK” position. To
free it, first be sure the key is pushed all
the way in, and then rock the steering
wheel slightly while turning the key gently.
For manual transmission:
Never remove the key when the
vehicle is moving, as this will lock
the steering wheel and result in loss
of steering control.
CAUTION
!
NOTICE
Do not leave the key in the “ON”
position if the engine is not running.
The battery will discharge and the
ignition could be damaged.
