Abs, traction control and run flat lights all on?!?!?

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum so forgive me if this is in the wrong place.
I have a 2004 mini cooper s. just done the brake pads and wear sensors front and rear, just over a week later and I have the traction control light, the abs warning light and the run flat indicator all on at the same time. This seems to clear for a while after stopping for a short time but then comes back on whilst driving. I have read that this may be due to a faulty wheel speed sensor and just wondered if anyone can confirm this? I'd rather not take it to the dealer as money is tight. Anyone's else had this problem? Help :-(

Almost certainly as they are all linked to readings from the wheel speed sensors........also as you did the brakes recently I would check around each wheel hub for any dirt or misalignment affecting a sensor.
