I am trying to find out the solutions to the following symptoms. SES light came on,

When car sits for a time transmission works fine at first but after driving 4-5 minutes
problem start up again. Drove two days ago SES light not on transmission is fine. Today
problem is back. Ignition interlock device hasn't worked since buying car 7 months ago.

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
