There are Four seperate electrical circuits on your tractor. Starting, ignition, charging and lights.
The key only turns on the ignition and charging circuits. The starting and lighting circuits are not affected by the key. You could spin the engine over all you wanted but with the key off you will not have any spark to start the engine. Likewise you can turn the lights on with the key in your pocket.
Sometimes it helps to think of your tractor as having those Four seperate circuits/functions. Less mind bending to analyze when one or another function isn't working properly.
