JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: Just ABS light
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have done nothing, will unhooking the battery reset it?
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No

Thanks for posting

Re setting probably will not help, you can disconnect the battery negative cable and the light may go off, if it comes back on as soon as you drive the truck there is an open circuit in the system and since you just had work on the rear brakes done my best guess is that a wheel speed sensor was damages or not re connected, the sensor wires can be stretched and pulled apart inside the insulation if not handled properly, so if the light turns back on right away I would recommend connecting a diagnostic scanner to see what the problem is, wheel speed sensors are easy to replace but kind of expensive.
