Wheel speed sensor fault

Hi, I changed the bearing to the rear and the sensor. So the problem has started showing errors: 5E42 - Wheel-speed sensor,air gap,rear right- Appears when I go back. second fault: 5E49 - Wheel-speed sensor,wheel bearing,rear right- when I go ahead. Maybe someone has a decision? What could be?

Wheel speed sensor

A lot of times you get a bad part right from the store. If you can, test with a DVOM set to AC voltage and compare readings when you spin the wheel by hand on the left and right sides. If the voltage on the new sensor is noticeably lower its a bad sensor. If you don't have a meter try swapping left and right sensors and see if the fault follows the sensor swap.
