I changed my brakes on tuesday my abs light came on today please help

My car has 245000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Ben. It’s possible that one of your ABS sensors or wheel sensors was left unattached, or has a faulty connection. I’ve also seen excessive brake dust cause the sensor to illuminate after recent replacement. You might want to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an ABS inspection, so they can correctly diagnose this problem.
