When it's turned on it checks to see if all sensors are present.
Then when car moves, it checks for pulses of the same frequency for all wheels. Once satisfied, the ABS light is extinguished.
As this is FREE, apart from time. I would (making sure you have radio code) disconnect the battery for a few minutes. See if the fault goes away, May have been "spiked" when changed.
Make sure car is asleep before disconnecting. i.e dash off if electronic.
