What To Expect

 An Attitude of Respect:

LifeSafer Service Providers understand the expectations and requirements of the criminal justice system and are committed to helping you succeed in your program.

Installation Process:

The LifeSafer Ignition Interlock devices look like a hand held portable phone with a long coiled cord connected to a small relay module that fits inconspicuously under the dash and is wired and tamper sealed into the vehicle’s ignition system. The installation will not damage your vehicle. LifeSafer uses only qualified Service Providers to install your device. Prior to the installation, both the mechanical and electrical systems are inspected to make sure the vehicle is capable of supporting the proper functions of the interlock. It is important to note that the proper use of this device will NOT drain or damage your battery or electrical system and/or components or interfere with the normal operations of your vehicle in any way. HOWEVER it is your responsibility to maintain your car battery and charging systems and vehicle in good working order.
