Have you verified this system is running the battery down? The system you describe is called the Remote Keyless Entry System (Electronic Time/Alarm & Control System - ETACS Module). It cannot be 'disconnected' without disabling other systems (intermittent wipers, Chime bell, Door Warning, Dimming Off Room Lamp, Seat Belt indicator, remote power door lock/unlock system, etc.)

If the ignition lock has not been damaged, ( that's where the GM Passlock system reads the ignition key) here is how you reset the Passlock to youe keys.
Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running again.

go on the internet search for remote start companies you will find one with a wiring diagram, it does not have to be a diagram for a grand am, you just want to know which wire to cut, the use an ohm meter (cost $8) to find the resistance value. go to radio shack get a resistor of that value (or a group of resistors of that value) connect the cut wires with the resistor inbetween and the car should start.you will have to remove the instrument cluster and starter switch to get at the wires, it really isnt that bad.

This vehicle is equipped with PASS-Key III (Personalized Automotive Security System) theft-deterrent system; this is a passive theft-deterrent system. This means nothing special needs to be done to arm or disarm the system.
It works when the key is inserted or removed from the ignition. PASS-Key III uses a transponder in the ignition key that matches a decoder in the vehicle.
Disarming with the Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter:
The alarm system will disarm when the remote keyless entry transmitter is used to unlock the doors. The red light will go out to show that the system is disarmed.
Disarming with Your Key:
The alarm system will disarm when the key is used to unlock the doors. The red light will stop flashing when the system is disarmed. If you would like the key to disarm the alarm system, see "Personal Programming Mode Screens" under DIC Controls and Displays (Base Level DIC) on page 3-52 or DIC Controls and Displays (Uplevel DIC with Trip Computer) on page 3-60 for more information of your Owners Manual.
When trying to start the vehicle, if the engine does not start and the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT SYSTEM warning message on the Driver Information Center (DIC) comes on, the key may have a damaged transponder. Turn the ignition off and try again.
If the engine still does not start, and the key appears to be undamaged, try another ignition key. At this time, you may also want to check the fuse. See Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-112. If the engine still does not start with the other key, the vehicle needs service. If the vehicle does start, the first key may be faulty. See your dealer who can service the PASS-Key® III to have a new key made.
Hope this helps.

You need to enter the unique code for your radio that was given to the orig owner. If you do not have that you will need to see the GM dealer.
