What year and trim level do you have? Is the antilock brake lamp on?

The master cylinder doesn't have anything to do with the ABS or Traction control systems. The EBCM and PMV are the major components. Both are very spendy, but since you had a monkey fooling around your brakes, I'd check the harnesses on the wheel speed sensors. I answered some of this in your novel post

I would also check your brake fluid level. If he did your brakes, he may have bled them. A low brake fluid level will take your ABS out.

It would be good to see your diagnostic trouble codes. On the 90 model you can retrieve them yourself. I believe AutoZone can retrieve them as well, if you don't know how to do it.

yeah i have a Haynes repair manual and i was just thinking of checking the codes.
should be interesting.
everything seems to be plugged in at the wheel hub area. i also had a tire guy look and he said he didnt see anything unplgged. maybe its at the other end?????
