    Abs light on after changing rear tyre and brake pads

    I’ve just taken the wheel off and had a new rear tyre . I took the opportunity and replaced my brake pads . Since putting it back together the abs light is on . The fault code says rear abs sensor . Is there something simple I’m missing.

    Have you put the same profile tyre on it. A mate had the wrong profile tyre fitted and the ABS faulted. Was faced with a £1500 bill but the Mechanic noticed the rear tyre was the wrong profile. Correct profile was fitted and the fault was cleared.
