The Alero's and Grand Am's don't have in tire sensors. They used the wheel speed sensors. Check out for instructions to deactivate the system.

Turn the ignition switch to the on position not the start position. Press the reset button once to make the oil light flash twice to make the tire indicator flash. Then hold down the reset button until it beeps 4 times . And then release the button .
