It’s that time of year again, with temperatures cooling down it’s important to start thinking about winter vehicle maintenance and preparation. At Intoxalock Ignition Interlock, we provide an exclusive sleep mode feature that allows you to save battery life, even during the winter. While an ignition interlock device is not something users normally consider when thinking about protecting their vehicle, Intoxalock continues to put the customer first in their device technology. Sleep Mode is not available to customers in NY, MA and WI.
Like all car accessories, ignition interlock devices are powered from your car’s battery. Things like multiple car accessories, car make and model and cold temperatures can cause added dependence on your car battery.
It is important for all drivers to check-up on their battery life and overall vehicle maintenance regularly, especially in harsher winter conditions. To conserve battery life, our Intoxalock ignition interlock devices can be set to Sleep Mode which turns off the internal heaters in your device. This special feature is one that puts Intoxalock above other breathalyzer devices when it comes to caring for and about customers’ personal vehicles.
