Ok, I have another update with the Theft Sys saga on my '96 Grand Am. After installing the switch, it seemed to work out but then .... yes, the Theft Sys light started flashing, the switch didn't help no matter the position.

I happened to be talking to a tow truck driver, the subject came up and he's had a similar issue. He said he just grounded out the security module.

So I pulled the wires from the switch, tied them back together and reconnected them to one side of the switch, then wired the other side to ground. Now, when the switch is open, the theft system circuit is closed as is normal. If there is a problem, flip the switch and the theft system circuit is grounded out.

I have been driving it now for a few days and have not been able to make the car stall out with the theft system since.

Ah, sweet success!
