I never open the bleeder, there are sensors back there, maybe a wire is off. I think the code should say and will clear easy enough with a scanner.

Not normally, opening the bleeder just makes it easier to compress the piston, recheck the electrical connections, and you could try bleeding the system just to make sure there isn't any air in the braking system. Then remove the ABS fuse and KAM fuse to clear the ABS computer if you don't have a scanner. Do not disconnect the battery.
