Exclamation Indicator Error Messages...Need Help!!!

My '01 SSEi is starting to have some small issues here lately. The "service stability" and "service theft system" lights are coming on. I have read several posts about the theft error coming on when it is cold. I am in West Texas and right now at 9 am it is 54 degrees and no wind. I don't think the cold is the culprit. I don't know if the battery is the original or a direct GM brand replacement. I do have the famous steering wheel clicking noise while turning. Obviously and bad intermidiate shaft. Would the problems I have with this have an effect on the steering wheel position sensor and the service stability system error. I have no mods on the car. Completely stock. I am going to order the newly revised intermidiate shaft next week from GM direct. Should I also go ahead and order the steering wheel position sensor also and replace it at the same time?

the only way to know what your SSS problem is to scan it. Dont assume here, if you dont know the correct part to replace it will get expensive very fast

Security light does not illuminate on the guage cluster. Just in the main read out on the DIC.

Will for sure be getting it scanned. Found a friend of a friend at the local Pontiac dealship with a debt to repay. Maybe I can also get him to perform the CASE learn after the new Intense PCM install.
