To help us find a solution, we need to know why the SES light is on, so we need you to post the codes that you can get scanned at any local auto parts store or borrow a scanner from a friend. Why haven't you fixed the ignition interlock yet?

Sounds a lot like an ignition switch dropping a voltage leg. Look into a switch. Really easy to tell by checking voltages
