Default ABS & Traction Control Lights

So heres the situation. I just got new tires installed on the front and now the traction control light and the ABS light are on. i serched the other posts and found that there is a connection down there and i'm thinking that the connection might have been knocked out when they put the tire on. is this possible???

Yes, there are wiring harnesses down there. What is the year and trim line of your car?

Wheel speed sensor, its on the hub wiring harness going to it .. check it out and pop it back on this is likely the prob bob.

Second that. Also check your brake fluid level. If it gets low, both the ABS and Traction Off lights will come on at the same time...

I was under the impression that the front wheel bearing hubs (failure) can also induce a ABS/Traction light too

Yes, I didn't mean to imply otherwise; I was just tossing that out as another possibility in case the timing of the tire work and the warning lights coming on was just a coinky-dink.
