Tcs and abs lights on after brakes changed Sign In

I replaced the rear drums and shoes on my 2011 Ford Focus and now when I drive, the traction control light and abs light come on and I can't accelerate past 5-10 mph. Tried disconnecting battery, now the abs light is on all the time. Tcs light still comes on when I try to drive also.

You must have messed up one of the speed sensors back there. Look it over again and see if you can see it.

Thanks. It wasn't the sensor, I didn't take the rings with the rubber piece that the sensors read off the old drums and put them on the new ones. Popped them off and put them on the new drums and it cleared the issue up.

You shouldn't have had to transfer the tone rings. That should have come with the new drum if it was the right one.
