if the acc is on, I believe it will function in number II position.
If fiddling with the key while in the II position while the car is working and either turns on or off the ACC then you can be sure the issue resides with the keyway/contacts

Other rare, but equally frustrating, causes is a bad engine temp interlock, located somewhere around the thermostat housing. If it is failing or near failure it will cause strange on /off behavior . It basically is the sensor that tells the system to turn on.
I know because this was my gremlin, after months of swithing out parts , acc units and the like.
