Unless this car is some sort of freak or possessed by satin the engine shuts off when you key off. DON'T go back to ACC. It's between OFF, ON, and START, that's IT.
Steering lock engages even when the key is in if it's on OFF. Only by moving it to ACC does the steering lock disengage.

The main headlights do not work when the car is in ACC, it supplies power to stuff like the radio, sidelights, dashboard lights e.t.c, but not the main headlights

You put the car into ON to put the headlights on, and naturally the engine starts up thus EOC is impossible

Why would it naturally start up? If you're still in gear, yes, but "run" isn't "start".

Computer control assumes you commanded start when you push the on button. Probably has an annoying system to bypass that.

Sometimes I'm glad to have a primitive car.

Nice numbers, and welcome to the site!
