      How to Disconnect an Interlock Device

      Ignition Interlock Device Removal Process & Requirements

      Ignition interlock devices are connected to your car’s starter and sometimes also your car horn and windshield wipers. Because of this, service centers that install them are specially trained in their removal.

      A car-savvy person may be tempted to remove their interlock device (IID) themselves. Although the initial removal may be successful, your IID provider will be notified that the device was tampered with.

      Tampering with an ignition interlock device could lead to severe consequences such as:

      • Longer ignition interlock lease requirement
      • Loss of all driving privileges
      • Hefty fines

      Any sort of tampering with the device or any work that is done on your vehicle without notifying your provider prior will result in a lockout and find you in non-compliance of your lease state’s regulations.

      What’s a Lockout?

      A lockout it when your ignition interlock device prevents your vehicle from starting until a certain amount of time has elapsed or your device is re-calibrated.

      Lockouts can be cause for a variety of reasons including when a person has several failed attempts at blowing a clean test. Customers are usually charged fees for lockouts due to the extra labor involved in ending a lockout.

      What Is State Compliance?

      To be in compliance of something means that you’re following the rules. Each state has different laws for how they enforce DUIs. However, in each state that requires a DUI or OUI offender to install an ignition interlock device if the offender removes the device before they are allowed, they are no longer in compliance of the state and may receive some form of punishment.

      Always check with the state your offense is in to make sure you have completed all of the requirements before removing your device.

      How to Make a De-Installation Appointment

      Once you have completed your state mandated lease and if you no longer want an ignition interlock device attached to your car, you can call you ignition interlock provider to have them schedule an appointment for its removal. All interlock providers have de-installation fees and account closing fees you will need to pay.
