Re: Anti lock brake light.
The anti lock lights run off a sensor that is attached to the calipers. By changing the rotors and pads will turn this light off. The sensor is bad or dirty, you need to have it checked by a technician. I hope this helps. don,t forget to rate my answer,thanks

the abs light on the dash should come on when the abs is working (emergency braking)if it comes on when braking normally(gently)chances are a sensor is gone(replace in pairs,fronts & rears)
abs stops the wheels from locking up in an emergency brake situation,you will feel the grab-release,grab-release on the brake pedal......
When changing pads or rotors the brake plunger must be forced back to make room for the replacement pads. It is important that with cars with anti lock brakes that the bleeder screws must be opened when pushing the plunger back. Not doing so and forcing fluid up to and in the reserve can injure the anti lock brake system and they are expensive to repair.
Did you also replace the brake pads? If not, the wear from the warped rotors most likely caused uneven wear on the pads (not visible by looking at them, but apparent when you apply the brakes). This is probably causing it feel like the rotors are still warped. I don't believe your anti-lock brakes have anything to do with this.
Hello there: also if you take you car to autozone and they can hook up the diagnostic handheld computer and clear the fault from the onboard computer thus this will clear the lights ok ? best regards michael
You may need a brake job. When the brake pads/rotors/shoes wear down the fluid will get low and the dash brake light will come on.
You can also get a readout of the codes. Many auto supply stores will load you a meter to do it. You can call several to find one.
