    There is a technical service bulletin from GM regarding this issue, and it may be the cause of your problem, but it will take a diagnosis of the system to know for sure. Take this info to a repair shop, explain the problem and the symptoms as best as possible, and inform them of the TSB# 80-90-08: info on theft deterrent alarm system
    Info from Bulletin(TSB):
    Subject: Information on theft deterrent alarm system
    Intermittent activation and/or security light stays on
    models: 1992-98 buick lesabre
    On vehicles that have forced entry theft deterrent systems, a common condition has
    the security light staying on for one minute or longer, or the alarm going off after
    the car is locked. this may be caused by the tamper switches or wiring from theft
    deterrent/rfa module to the switches.
