ABS question on 2006 2500 HD Silverado

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? And have the brakes been squeaking?

I want to know if I need to program ABS module after changing a failed sensor

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

Yes Replaced sensor with broken wire. Now the vehicle engages ABS module on that wheel when I am braking and drop below 20 MPH

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

I think that's it
