ABS and Brake light

Just changed the rear all in one brake drums with the bearings already in them. To the car for a drive and the ABS and brake light came on. Did I do something wrong or is that another problem that I have to fix. If it is another problem what do I need to do to fix it.

Posted via FF MobileSounds like the wrong parts. If you have ABS you need the right bearings. They have "tone rings" as part of them. No ring, nothing for sensor to measure, computer can`t tell wheel speed.

Most likely you did not move the ABS rings from the old drums to the new ones,

Or, it DOES use tone ring and the proper bearings were put in backwards. I saw several like that when I worked at the store. Good help is so hard to find.
