ABS light is on...

ABS light is on after wheel bearing replacement

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Just the abs light. comes on after about 100 ft of forward driving.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

1997 f-150

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Myself. there was a fluted ring on the old hub/rotor piece. I haven't really looked at that closely to see if it's supposed to go back on the spindle as a tone ring or something.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I've put the truck through a series of braking and it doesn't seem to be affecting the operating of the brakes.
