On some GMs of that time period several things are linked to the BCM (Body Control Module) through the factory radio. Such as the oil life system, personal settings for the interior lights, and yes the security system. Since everything was fine until the battery was disconnected I'd try to contact either the previous owner who installed the aftermarket radio or the radio manufacturer. The manufacturer may have online instructions for how to bypass this. HTH. -Jim
