98 Cavalier ignition relay

I need to replace the relay that prevent high current from flowing through the ignition switch. The relay was originally installed by the dealer during
a recall. The relay is marked Omron #12177235.
The auto part clerk told me it's no longer available and I should install Omron #12177233 instead. I tried to find #12177235 elsewhere with no luck. Nobody seems to have it.
Is GM now install #12177233? Can it be used to replace #12177235?
