Starter keeps working when I connect accumulator

This morning I realized that acc has almost no power - I left my car twith the lights ON for all night. So I decided to use the starting/charging device (SCD), that I have. So When I only plugged it to the accumulator, I heared the noise of the starter. I turned SCD off at once. Afther that, I disconnected acc from the car and charged it. Now when I connect acc to the car - the starter starts working automatically, no matter if there is a key in the slot or not. Also, all turning lights (yellow) are ON.

Is it true that I make a mistake by connecting SCD to this car? I had Mitsubishi Delica (1996) and had no problem with SCD.

Please help me to understand, what could be burned, maybe relay, or something else. I need to find the reason. Thank you in advance.

P.S. I have a Tomahawk x-5 alarm system installed, but with auto-start function disabled.
Do you

To me acc means accessory position at ignition switch. The only accumulator I'm aware of has to do with air conditioning system. I realize I may be showing my ignorance, it happens.

If problem with starter, I'd have to check voltage circuits at starter, to see what's hot when it shouldn't be. Any testing at the starter, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

As far as aftermarket security system, I can't help you with that.
