What happens if I do not provide a breath test during a “random retest”?

If you fail to do the retest within 10 minutes, the horn will sound repeatedly and the headlights will flash until the vehicle is turned off.  Once the vehicle is turned off, the IID will not allow you to restart the vehicle within 3 minutes without taking an initial breath test. The IID will place your vehicle in a permanent lockout state; the vehicle would have to be towed to the installer for service before you can operate it again.
