There are plenty of visual clues. I don't understand how anyone would need more. The easiest way for me to tell from ACC or On is the green car in the middle of the bottom display with the arrow underneath which ONLY means it is On and ready to drive. If all the dash lights are on and that little green car is absent, then I know it is in ACC mode. It goes completely dark/black when it is OFF. Unless someone is blind (they shouldn't be driving), you just can't miss these.
Sorry, but you've got that wrong. According to the owner's manual there are five
different power states, and you are misusing their names. READY is what you are calling ON, when the green car is there. ON is what you are calling ACC, when the dash is lit up and there is no green car. Just semantics? Hardly. Because there is an ACC mode and the dash is not
lit up at all. There is also an OFF state and a LOCK state, but don't ask me the subtleties of the distinctions between those two. What matters, though, is that ACC has a blank dash, and can drain the battery.
