This might work for most:
Theft Module Re-learn Procedure without a T5O or T6O
During this procedure, the vehicle battery must maintain a minimum of 10.5 volts. If the battery is not fully charged or is weak, a battery charger may be connected.
NOTE The battery charger must NOT be set in 12 volt boost. This will prevent this procedure from working.
1. Cycle the ignition switch to the "Run" position.
2. Wait a minimum of 10 minutes, cycle the ignition switch to the "Off" position.
3. Cycle the ignition switch to the "Run" position.
4. Wait a minimum of 10 minutes, cycle the ignition switch to the "Off" position.
5. Cycle the ignition switch to the "Run" position.
6. Wait a minimum of 10 minutes, cycle the ignition switch to the "Off" position.
7. Verify the repair.
and if not try this:
STARTING DISABLED/DUE TO THEFT SYSTEM/REMOVE IGNITION KEY"
If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) does not receive the Fuel Enable message it will use the class 2 serial data line (CKT 1807) to tell the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) to display the "STARTING DISABLED/DUE TO THEFT SYSTEM/REMOVE IGNITION KEY" message on the Driver Information Center (DIC) . This will inform the driver of why the engine is not starting. When the ignition is turned "OFF", the IPC will start a timer and display messages to inform the driver to wait for the PASS-Key II timer to run out. The messages will read "WAIT 3 MINUTES", "WAIT 2 MINUTES" (after 1 minutes has passed), "WAIT 1 MINUTE", and "START CAR".
If the timer was not run out, the IPC will not send the Fuel Enable message. When the PCM does not receive the Fuel Enable message, it will command the IPC to re-start the message process.
This message is most likely caused by an improper key resistor value or the IPC did not properly sense the ignition key resistance.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

The Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) System also contained in the BCM commands the instrument cluster to control the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF. The CTD System uses the SECURITY indicator to identify system status.
It's software , a program inside the BCM ! An you can't just replace the BCM , it needs programming ! The dealer is the place to have that done ,most of the time ! If there is a SECRUITY light lit on the dash ,there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM , this code will point the service technician in the diagnostic path !
