Re: abs not working
Its the clear problem of wheel assembly.in this case wheel assembly has to be replaced.as the sensor in the present wheel assembly is proper so its showing the noise below 30mphbut the wheel assemblky is faulty so its not working.no need to reprogram as this is not possible.replacing the wheel assembly is necessary to solve the issue.

Re: abs not working
U need to find out if the sensor is giving out a signal, the problem may be the the exciter ring on the hub or the wiring to the sensor or the air gap at the sensor, measure the air-gap at another wheel sensor, carefully check the wiring to he sensor, u may have pulled a pin loose in the wiring harness connector shell or broken a wire inside the insulator cover (do a continuity check) when u damaged the sensor. also was this a factory part? last disconnect the battery for a few and clear the code.

try putting one wheel of what you want to do on a hub to see if it fits
check for stud pattern and that the studs fit in the center of each hole
next measure the distance from the rim edge ( use a straight edge across the diameter and measure from that edge to the stud holes are ( measuring rim off set)
if both wheels measure the same then they should fit
go to a tire dealer and get the details of each rim to see if it can be done
the major items to be aware of are the stud pattern is the same pitch circle diameter ( bolts in the same circle ) and the center off set of the rim
strip it down to your hub the hub holds the studs .it is a push pull fit .but an old nut on it.then hit the top of it .it when then push in.remove the nut. push in the new stud from the rear of the hub.put a larger nut on top of stud ,then your wheel nut to pull the stud into the hub.then remove the wheel nut .then refit the parts taken off.and fit your wheel.
you will have to remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor and remove the studs. Then you will need to install new studs for which you will need a stud installer tool or you can use a lug nut and washers to pull stud through the hub. the stripped out studs can be removed with a hammer. make sure you have the clearance in the back of hub before pounding on them.
If you have a stripped lug nut on your vechicle, the best thing is to take the vehicle to a tire shop and have them remove the nut. You can drive missing one nut tempoarily. They have universal tools for removing wheel locks and this will work for this application. You will need a new nut.
If you have a stripped wheel stud, these are available at your local parts store. To remove the stud you will need a small sledge hammer. when the wheel and brake drum/rotor is off, the stud should be exposed. There should be a hole in the backing plate of the axle and this is where the stud needs to be lined up with. Hammer the stud out through the hole. Next, replace with the new stud. To seat the stud on the splined area you need to press the stud into place. Using a number of flat wahers, place them on the threaded part of the stud until only 5 threads are showing. Turn on the new nut and tighten the nut until the stud is pulled into place. You may need to remove the nut and add more washers to seat the stud. Hope this helps.
Replace the wheel studs as well as the nuts. Make sure you have the correct wheel for the vehicle and that it is sitting flat on the hub flange. If the bolt holes in the wheel are elongated, do not use the wheel. Make sure that the lugs are threading onto the studs at least the diameter of the stud (eg: A 1/2" stud diameter needs to go into the nut a minimum of 1/2") otherwise it can pull off and destroy the threads.
Here's another thought - if the stud isn't too badly stripped, you may be able to use a re-threading die to restore the threads. The thread type and size will depned on the make and model of your car. An autmotive parts store can usually help with this.
If you must replace the stud,
A bad stud can usually be driven out through the back of the axle flange. You said the stud was stripped. You can:
Force one of the lug nuts onto the stripped stud maybe two to three turns , then take a drift pin and drive the stud out the back. The stud will have grooves that hold it in place on the axle flange. You willl hhave to hold the stud head with vice grips and remove the lug nut to get the stud out.
To install a new stud, insert it from the back, add a little grease to the knurls (grooves) and pull it into place with a lug nut. The stud must be firmly seated in the axle flange.
check and make sure u did not damage or disconnect the wheel sensor(s), that would be just about the only thing u could have done to cause this issue, u might want to have the system tested for trouble codes to confirm this wheel sensor possiable fault.
