What seems to be the problem?
You are right about it having something to do about the ABS brake system. It it just started after doing the brkae work then most likely its the wheel speed sensor. Did you check to make sure it didnt get disconnected?
There is one for each wheel on the front.
The anti-lock brake control module receives wheel speed readings from each anti-lock brake sensor and processes this information to determine if an ABS event is necessary. The anti-lock brake sensor electrically senses each tooth of the anti-lock brake sensor indicators as it passes through the anti-lock brake sensor magnetic field.
99% chance its a bad or disconnected, or dirty sensor but the problem is you dont know which side is the bad one.
You can have the ABS codes retrieved and it will tell you which one is reporting a fault though.
Its a special code reader that is used. Most parts stores sell the code reader for around 60 bucks and thats your best and cheapest way to find which one is at fault other than inspecting them real good to see if one is disconnected, wire cut, etc...
Once replaced it will take care of the problem.

Sorry for the delay Dave.
If it's setting a code and the wire looks good then the sensor must have failed or there is some crud buildup on the inside of the sensor and it cant read the wheel speed.
