Just came from edmunds town hall, seems it's a common problem with the Grand Am (there's even a class action suit against GM over this) and the best solution seems to be to bypass the Secuirty Passlock system. Many Grand Am owners are stuck trying to reset the Security light by turning the key to ACC and waiting 10 min for it to reset, only to have it come on again later. Here's the link to the forum (almost 600 posts for same issue). I'd try a few of the remedies b/4 investing even more in a ECU which probably won't leave you any better off than you are now. Best of luck to you.
