When you switch your key to accessory juice is being used by on star plus many other vampire electrical things.
This is normal in modern vehicles today.
I was told you could just put the key into the ignition & not turn it to Accessory & no ill effect would occur. I haven't tryed this & would do more research before you do this.
Does your Spark have a steering wheel lock? That would be the only reason I could see to turn the key to the ACC position.
My Sonic does not have a steering wheel lock so after making sure it is in neutral I turn the key off and remove it, then close and lock the vehicle.
