I have a 96 grand am that done the same thing. If your out and stuck and really need the car started take a screwdriver and kick the starter in yourself under the hood. Car needs to be in neutral. this is the only way ours would start. Re-cap.. I have the same car and when your theft system light comes on what you will need to do is put your car in the on position (do not turn over, just leave in the position) and leave it there for 10-15 minutes. In that time you will continue to see the light blinking, but after the 10-15 minutes, the light will stay lit instead of blinking. That shows you that your computer has been reset and you will now be able to turn on your car. Hope this helps!
