Probably because you disruped the wheel sensor on the side that you replaced the wheel bearing. It will illuminate the light when faulty. The car will now not activate the ABS in an emergency, and also (as your experiencing it now), activate the ABS when it shouldn't.

So do I replace the wheel sensors? Does this sensor send a signal to my throttle body. I have been also told it could be my throttle body malfunctioning but it only started happening after the wheel bearing replacement
