Angry "antilock Light Stays On"

I finally got the engine / trans swapped in my 16vlv and low and behold the damn "antilock" light on the instrument panel stay on. Not that it is related to it. I have replaced the OVP, ABS control unit (005-545-21-32) about a 2 months ago w/ no problem. Now all of the sudden the light comes on when the car starts to roll forward. I was also told that the ABS pump (LH inner fender) has a couple of relays housed under the black plastic cover. Now I know that those units do not go bad that often, but was wondering what else I may try to solve this little quandry I am experiencing. THanks guys/gals

Since the light comes on once the car starts to move, then stays on until the engine is shut down I'd be looking at the sensors. Since you did an engine/tranny swap, I'd be looking at the front sensors especially. Could you have possibly buggered one (or both) during the swap?
