Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

there are multiple things this could be, so replacing parts without proper diagnostics being carried out is risky. Possible causes are an issue with the immobilizer/car access system, brake switch, transmission position switch or even the start/stop button

.

the only way this could happen is if the mechanics at the dealership are damaging the sensors either intentionally or accidentally. there is no reason an abs sensors should be even remotely close to touched during a wheel change.
