ESP/ABS lights

Okay heres the story: Installed the Clayton 3.5" lift, steering wheel went off center a bit so unhooked the front right ABS sensor that sits on the front right wheel well so that it wouldn't do the ABS dance goin around corners and what not (temporary until I got it aligned and the steering wheel straightened out) so i got it aligned and the steering wheel centered. Plugged the sensor back in, and I'm still gettin the lights even though everything should be running as normal as it should be.

So my question is: Do I need to do the system reset (unhook battery overnight) in order to get these lights off? I tried to use my procal to clear them but it didn't so I'm not sure how to go from here. Advice??

No experience with the sensors, but have you verified steering wheel straightness with the procal? 'Computer' straight with the procal has my steering wheel visually/physically off-center.

well if it was off by a minute amount it wouldn't still show the lights right? From what i've learned it'll only act up if its off by a major amount...i'll check it anyways.

I figured as soon as I plugged that sensor in that the ESP/BAS and ABS lights would've gone off......crap!
