It should be in the front left inboard brake pad. You jack up the car, remove the front left wheel, and pull it out of the top of the brake pad backing plate. there is a metal spring clip around it that holds it in there snugly, but it should pull out. Then unthread the wire back up to the little box where the plug is. Be carefull pulling the plug apart. Don't pull it by the wires or you may pull the plug off the end of the wire on the car side, and you will end up soldering the new sensor (and all subsequent sensors) onto the wire,
Are you replacing the sensor without replacing the pads? Why?

Oil leak in 2001 bmw 530i , middle towards front? About a quart a month ?

Look for the location where the gasket is leaking. Get someone to remove it and replace it. This is affordable if you buy a new gasket at a local auto store and get someone to do it. The real problem here is that your leak is so significant that you need to be constantly checking and adding oil or you will ruin your entire engine.

I would have your front brake rotors checked. A bad rotor will cause excessive vibration.

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.

The brake and abs lights are on in my 2003 bmw 530i what can this be from?

You may need to replace your brake pads and one of your sensors on the wheels.

If it has a problem, then you will get the abs light.

The best way to proceed is a get a computer read out and also look at your brake pads before proceeding with changing them.
