    No,brake pads have no effect on ABS system unless they are so low that the red brake lamp is on,then the ABS system will shut itself off and turn on the ABS 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

Tip

Changing brake pads and or rotors


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.

2001 olds alero, When I step on the breaks it


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.

Lights on dash


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.
