Atleast it's fixed for yoou now anyway.
maybe, if(when) they checked the rear brakes, they layed(dropped) the drum on the floor with the ring side down...if so, i could see that action messing up the tone ring..(??).

Stangbanger242 If you have a new sensor, run an abs capable scanner through the obd2 port. Should tell you which corner is the culprit. Swap the sensor and check it again.

Laminar Turns out the brake job was a red herring. I took it into the dealer today and they pulled the code for me - RR wheel speed problem. They took off the wheel and drum and found the tone ring was damaged. I paid for the diagnosis ($89) and the tone ring only ($46), they didn't charge me any labor or time. Very pleased to have this working again, just in time for snowy weather.

don627 The issue may not have anything to do with the brake job. Need to find out what the codes are in the ABS module to really diagnose anything. Could be as simple as a broken wire in the wheel sensor wiring harness, if the sensors are working you need to verify that the signal is coming out the other end of the wire.

focusZX505 It should be sending a signal to the elm to know what each wheel speed is that's how abs and tv work if it reads fronts are alot fast then rear it apples the brakes to allow better traction did you check the rear sensors

Laminar What do you mean by "it should be sending out a signal"? I confirmed that the AC voltage reading of both front wheel speed sensors changed with tire speed. What else can I do?

focusZX505 IIRC you can't really check the air gap on these sensors. it's built into the wheels bearsing and spindle. also it should be sending out a signal
