I don't think it's a true accessory mode, if it's running the fan, headlights, etc. It's basically turning the ignition "on" without cranking the engine (equivalent to position II with the key).

I think the OP just wants the stereo (what accessory mode should be), and I think you can turn that on separately without powering up all the other stuff (which will make the battery last considerably longer).
