hey there, i didn't hear back from you so i stepped away for a bit.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

the key will have to be in the OFF position for the ignition interlock to release the key. In case of a dead battery there is additionally a little lever to release the key you can access with the cover off.
