Hi Jack ... Obviously the anti-theft system impacts a number of different systems in your car and as such it's a very tricky bit of sidestepping that your are contemplating. I didn't find much info in Chilton's, certainly not enough to smartly (and safely) disable it, if that's even your best option. It's time to take this to a dealer to have the anti-theft system debugged. Barring that maybe he can help you reset the codes or find another way to live in peace with it. He may also know of an easy way to disable it. If you don't want to go that route you may try a trip to your local car alarm shop. If they are friendly enough they may give you some advice for free. Good luck!
