You'll probably find you need to clear the fault codes from the system.

Anyone with an OBDII reader can do it.

Any garage with a professional reader will be able to look deeper for codes.

A lot of the time even when a fault is fixed the code stays resident on the system until read and cleared so warning lights and fault warnings will still show.

Your abs will not work as there is a fault.

Have you checked the connections at the sensors and under the car?

The ESP takes it reading from the abs system so the chances are it will sort that out too

im not sure what your car has but the abs sensor will pick its signal from a ring which is fitted to the end of the driveshaft or sometimes from the wheel bearing itself. if whatever one of these your car has is damaged the ecu will throw an error up for that wheel.
