ABS Light coming on?

I had to replace one of my calipers the other day and now after driving for a little bit the abs light is coming on and sometimes the E-brake light comes on with it. Any ideas on what the problem is?

Air bubble in the system causing a pressure fluctuation that's freakin out the computer? Don't know, that's just my off the cuff hair brain thought.

Double check that your master cylinder is fully topped off.

I had the same issue on mine a few weeks ago. Nw mine has alot less ABS items that yours does, but I installed new brake somponents, drove the truck, everything seemed fine but the lights came on. Later I checked and topped off the master cylinder and the lights went out.

Something to check.:Thumbup:

Might have pulled loose or broken the wheel sensor wire. It goes into the back side of the spindle and plugs together behind to fender. Mine had a small clip screwed to the top of the spindle holding it in place.
