My abs, traction, and brake lights are on after a front brake and bearing job were done

By "were done" I am guessing someone else did the job for you. It is a common error at garages to forget to reconnect the sensors so that is my first thought but then you say you changed the front sensors, was that after the brake job and do you have 4 wheel ABS? The plugs for the sensors should always be cleaned if not replaced after a brake job in my opinion (high dirt area). More info will get you a better answer if you post back I may be able to help more/better.

Abs light staying on,ford focus 2005

Hi Graham
check your brake fluid first
remove each wheel and check your sender ring and your sensor wire and connection
if they are ok trace the sensor wires back in case there is a junction before the abs block
if that is ok
get it tested at a garage for a report and replace the parts required per the report

I have a mk1 ford galaxy. there was a broken wire going to one of the front abs sensors. i have re-joined the wire but the abs and brake stop lightr are still own. do i need to get hold of a fualt code...

abs sensor wires are very funny when it comes to just rejoining them as the resistance in the wire is less so abs light may stay on, most earlier fords abs lights will go off after prob is fixed and car is driven, best to go to local garage and get diagnostic done
