you can find the wire coloring diagrams on a few websites
some may vary in which colors are the actual ones, but to tell you the truth sometimes u won't know until you try.
here are some sites
for the 99+ model year i found that all of these websites had some wire colors that were not correct...such as wire for acc or ignition 2, also had the same problem with my buddies civic...his heater wire was only listed correctly on the one website, all the other websites that we looked at and tried the wires didn't work.
So maybe wait for someone who actually insalled it in that year grand am and see what they say

Have you actually purcahsed the alarm/r.s. unit yet? If not, I would suggest going to the alarm/r.s. manufacturer's website and downloading the install guide. This will allow you to size up what all will need to be done, and also help determine if the unit will work with your car.
You'll also want to get the color codes / diagrams for your car... links above will work. Don't depend on one diagram... get at least 2 and compare. (the tach wire was wrong on my first diagram)
I did alarm/r.s./keyless on my 95. If you wanna see what you're getting into...
Does your car have passlock? If it doesn't it should be similar to my install... but if it does that will complicate things a bit.
