According to the owner's manual - you need to shut off the ignition and wait about 10 minutes for the theft system to reset. It usually doesn't take a full ten minutes, in my experience, more like 5 minutes. My own online search about this indicates that this module can go out and leave you stranded - don't know about disconnecting it.
