If all brake fluid was lost during the work then the ABS system will need bleeding .

You will need a ABS diagnostic tool or the dealer diagnostic tool to bleed the system correctly .

Not much you can do without this tool ,

What you could try if you don't have access to this tool is to do a conventional bleeding and then drive onto a gravel road and do a few emergency brakes so the ABS kicks in ,this sometimes bleeds the ABS pump.

Then bleed the system again and if needed repeat.

This is not a one answer and done i will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .
