The front wheel bearings have a magnetic encoder ring built-in that, along with the sensor that reads it, tells the computer what the wheels are doing. This info is used to trigger the ABS/traction control systems. If the bearing you used doesn't have the encoder ring or you put the bearing in backwards so the ring is facing outwards instead of inwards, or you unplugged/damaged the sensor while doing the install, you'll get warning lights on the dash.

I took it back apart again today and tested the sensor and the wheel bearing to see if it was right. The wheel bearing is good but The sensor must of got damaged. I’ll go and get a sensor tomorrow and see if it works Thanks for the info tho.
