It is most likely caused by one of the ABS wheel speed sensors, those little cylindrical nipples on the back of your rotors with the cable attached to them. One way to confirm it is to read out the OBD2 codes for the ABS system, but there are some checks you can do. Visually check all four cables and sensors , and make sure there is no build up on the sensors. Make sure that the connector they plug into has good connections. Look at the wheel speed sensor and make sure the gap between the sensor head and the sprocket is the same on all four wheels (should be no more than a mm). Disconnect the wheel speed sensor cable and use an ohm-meter to check the resistance of all four sensors (they should all be similar, but don't remember the value exactly). There is a way to just disable the ABS by pulling out the 60A fuse, but if you do that you may have to plug in a code reader and use a grounding jumper on the ABS electical access box (don't remember which pin) to reset the ABS faults, otherwise you won't be able to drive around like that because your engine rpm at high speeds will behave erratically. Also, do not drive around without fixing this problem or bypassing ABS completely because it could get you into an accident. My ABS problem was intermittent, and the ABS would sometimes kick in on completely dry pavement as soon as I touched the break pedal, it almost caused me to rear-end a car on couple of occasions.

I would take it in to a shop and have a free brake inspection done. They will give you a list of things wrong , and you can go from there.

SOURCE: 2004 focus brake & ABS light on
Ok the reason I ask is that will help to pinpoint the concern. See ABS system when you first turn the ignition on will do a self test on itself,light turns on for a few seconds then turns off if everything proves out. Then when you start driving once you reach about 12 mph it will activate the pump and perform a 2nd self test.If everything is ok light stays off,if it see's a problem it turns on the light and disables the ABS.
Since yours comes on after you start driving then problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor concern. Since you just did a rear brake job and the problem started after this I would say it is one of the rear sensors.You need to look at the sensors and make sure the sensor and ring look ok and that you didn't get grease or dirt in the teeth of the sensor ring or maybe bent the end of one of the sensors and make the gap larger between sensor and ring.

There is a senor that is in the caliper they are pricey and annoying a way to try to see if its it make a soltuion of salt water, heavy salt soak the whole caliper reall good i mean real good with start the veh. back up and down the drive way then rinse it off throughly and see what thew the lights do, do this f or ll sides, make sure you throughly rinse after and dont let the salt water saty on for mor e than 10 mins. But this will fluse the senosr and clean it...Sometime resets them,,,,Sounds crazy but it works if that is the problem. Try this and let me know fro m there

The retraction tool all depends on the caliper. My 04 Touareg came with 4 piston Brembo's in the rear and they do not require rotation just compression as in the front which are Brembo 6 piston.
