Did you lose alot of fluid when you rebuilt/replaced the caliper? Was it bled? If you lost enough, the ABS module may need to be bled (requires diagnostic tool). Also you'll probably need to readjust your e-brake as it isn't supposed to be as loose as you make it sound.
i understand the wires go to the hub and not the caliper but it won't cost anything to see if the wires got damaged while working on the braking system that is attached to the hub. something as simple as a slip with a wrench or ratchet when loosening or tightening bolts can hit the wires and cause damage sometimes without even realizing the slip hit the wires. thats what i was meaning. i have done it without knowing and have seen others do it as well and never knew they damaged the wires.
