There is a common issue with the 1999-2005 Grand Am with the ABS/Traction Control system. The problem ranges from being intermittent, usually during slow-speed turning maneuvers, to constant, every time you drive the car.
The problem usually is tied to the wheel speed sensors, or the electrical connections to these sensors. The front seem more problem-prone than the rear. As 'first-aid', the preliminary step usually involves removing the wheels and inspecting the wiring and connector If everything looks intact continue on.
Disconnect the connector, clean the contacts, give it a dab of dielectric grease, and reassemble. If the problem persists, it is best to have the DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) read to determine the malfunctioning component. Once that is determined, replace the malfunctioning unit. The wheel speed sensor is part of the hub assembly and can not be purchased separately.
