Chev impala: I have an interlock system on my 2006 chev impala

Customer Question

I have an interlock system on my 2006 chev impala from Nationwide. They are suppose to have the best interlock out there. I pass the blow test but my car will still not start 50% of the time! The installer doesn't know why and Nationwide keeps saying their device must be incompatible with my car! They have replaced the control box two times and I still cannot start my car even though I have always passed the blow test. I have a new battery and that is not the problem. I do have a battery maintainer wired into my battery as the car used to belong to my great grandmother and she did not drive it enough to keep the battery charged. The installer states the maintainer should not be causing the problem. Do you have any suggestions? Nationwide keeps telling me to change companies, but how do I know any other interlock will not do the same thing.

The car starts fine with the interlock off. My father drove it for two days with the system off and it started every time.

I don't want to pay anymore, so please email me your response.

Ok, I do need more information from you. When this no start condition occurs, does the engine crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Have you checked for codes in the computer?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
We haven't but assume the installer did. He states he has never had this problem with a car before.
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.
Can you ask him and find out? I need to know all of the details before I can point you in the right direction.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I guess I will have to ask for a refund as the installer lives 100 miles away and says he has done everything he is suppose to.

Sounds good
