By changing the wheel bearings you have to remove the brake callipers and hubs
the abs sensor reads off the back of the hub so check each wheel to ensure that the wire is still connected to the sensor and that the sensor is the correct distance from the rotor on the back of the hub, the rotor for the sensor looks like a bar code or segmented piece around the hub center
it may have fallen off or been damaged during the bearing change

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.

After replacing front passenger side ball bearing & new brake set by auto repair shop on my 2003 mazda protege5 2.0l abs warning light on all time during driving . what went wrong with abs sensor?...

With the light on, the power train computer (ecu) should have trouble codes for the abs to indicate the problem.
I would take it back to the shop. They may have got a wheel sensor misadjusted or not connected. They did the brake job, they are responsible to do the job right before letting it go out the door. I hope they do take responsibility, let us know. If they refuse or want more money, that is one shop to avoid.

Brake sensor? something else?

You have a faulty wheel speed sensor. This is a magnetic pick up sensor on your wheel bearing hub and it controls your abs. If the car can not sense all 4 wheels then the abs will default back to normal brakes and your traction control will not work. Look at your wheel bearing hubs and check for these sensors. They are on the underside of the car and are black plastic with a wire comming out of it. A piece of gravel may have broken the pick up or the wires to a sensor may be broken as well. To replace it is usually a couple of screws on the hub assembly and a plug to disconnect from your wire harness.

ABS, TRAC OFF, and service vehicle soon light are all on. Mechanic put new wheel bearing and replaced wires that had been coroded. A week later the lights are all back on.

Sounds exactly like the problem I had on my 2003 grand am. I can almost guarantee you have a bad wheel bearing. The change in pressure on the bearing from turning causes the noise to change. The wheel speed sensor is also integrated into the wheel bearing hub assembly which is sending the signal to turn on your brake light.
I would change both front hub assemblies. Ran around $300 for me to do both and put them on myself. Its a very simple job to do yourself if you have the right tools. Make sure you have a "pulley puller" to pull the hub assembly off the CV shaft. You should be able to rent one from a local parts store like Autozone if you don't know someone that already has one.

All the hubs on the car have the abs sensor built into the hub. The abs system has to be re set to read the sensor . The rear hub bearing if noisy should be replaced. There are wiring harnesses that connect to the abs sensor. The harnesses to each of the abs sensor should be replaced.
