So here it is. I had to have an ignition interlock device installed because I went to a wedding with my girlfriend and had a couple glasses of wine. In Alameda county even if you arent over the limit but are close enough and go through a check point you can still get in trouble and are required even as a first time offender to install an IID for 5 months.
So I took the car to the installer and the very next morning after it was installed my car wouldnt start. I had it towed back to the installer and he told me I had no power on the ignition1 wire that he tapped into so he moved his tap to ignition2 and the car starts. He says he checked all the fuses and it should have power but it dosnt.
He said to take it to the dealer since its under warranty and have them look at it.
The car has never had any sort of problem like this before and I know it has to be their equipment install that caused it.
I'd like to climb under the dash with a tester and see if I can find why it no longer has power because when this thing is removed Im afraid my car wont start.
Can anyone provide any insight or a diagram of the ignition system to a 2009 Matrix S?
I just want to be sure my car isnt damaged before its too late.
have the same problem?
