ABS Light and Emergency Brake Lights Stay On

I replaced the ABS sensor to my driver rear side and my ABS, emergency, and traction lights all stay on after I replaced a flat tire on my driver rear. I replaced the ABd sensor but the lights still stay on...any suggestions?

BTW - since all these lights came on together, I noticed my speedometer to not work either. It has to be all connected because it was working before my flat tire.

Try this. Disconnect battery for about 5 minutes. Reconnect and see if it clears up. That's where I would start from. Unless if you have a check engine light I would read the codes first before trying that.

Do you have access to any scan tools? Many basic scanners have access to the ABS, MRS, DME, EKP, Light switching centre, etc. and many other control units.

Did you accidentally hit the DSC button ? That happened to me once - I never even noticed it before. All my lights were on - I googled it and found that I accidentally turned of the DCS and that made all the lights on the dash go on. I just hit it again and they all went off. The button is on the console under where the ashtray thing is.
