i have just recently changed my rotors and my pads and all my brake fluid and am not having a little bit of trouble with the abs, it continually comes on when i brake and sometimes it goes away and the ABS check light comes on and the abs stops working. what have i done wrong or what do i need to do to fix this?

Alrighty mate I do believe ive heard of the issue before but cant remembed what caused.ot to happen. Currently it apappears that one wheel is making a hell of alot of brake dust and the others are not will pull the wheel off to see what it is.

If one wheel is making lots of brake dust I'd say the caliper is binding, cant see that causing ABS issues though, unless the driveability is SEVERELY affected.

but abs sees 3 wheels at 1 speed and the 4th wheel draging slower-error warning

Yeah but my point is, the wheel wont be dragging any slower unless it severely affects driveability, it will just be grinding the brake pads and rotor away.

No driving issues at all other than the abs going off. How do I go about fixing the caliper? Should I remove it and pop the piston?
