Changed rear diff fluid now abs and traction control lights coming on

I just finished a long two week road trip from Texas to Michigan and back. I decided today since the mileage was around 35k that I would change the differential fluid as they were at about 22k on the current fluid.

All went easy. Drained the fluid, then filled until it started dripping out of the top hole. Put the plug back in and immediately backing out of the drive the traction control starts grabbing, the abs light comes on and hill descent started flashing. I turn off traction control and can drive but the ABS light stays on.

The jeep is a 2014 JKUS with 35k miles, I have an Ected locker in. This change of fluid, I thought I would try a synthetic differential fluid instead of regular and friction modifier. Could that be causing the traction control issue?
