My daughter's 1996 grand am has an anti-theft system installed in it and for whatever reason it activated this past sunday and now won't start. how can we de-activate the 'theft sys' permanently? the original ignition key was lost and another key was cut, would this be the problem?

Is it just not registering the key and the anti-theft module needs a key fob? Or is it the ignition?
