Default abs light

My abs light comes on and then goes off and sometimes by brakes make a strange clicking sound. I just put all new brakes and rotors on car.Is this the abs sensor? That is my guess but i dont want to order part and that not be it all my fluid is good im confused the breaks work good but the light and noises worry me cuz its the car that hauls my 2 year old around. any info would help alot thanks.

Pull the ABS code by jumping the service connector with a jumper wire.

You don't need a special tool, just a piece of wire or paperclip to short the 2P service connector. It's the same connector used to pull CEL codes.

ok yeah i just read that on another site cuz i wasnt sure what you were saying. But how do i tell what the problem is? i dont get it i just redone all the brakes and they seem to work fine but the light and that weird clicking noise scares the hell outta me infact it sounds like a paper clip taping on my rotor.

Pull the ABS code to see if it leads you to the noise.
