Replaced computer on 2005 dakota now abs/brake light comes on and brakes grind

I replaced the CPU in my truck and now the abs and brake light comes on after a little bit of driving and the brakes are grinding also help me .

Which computer did you replace? The Powertrain control module or the ABS module?

It was the pcm one

When installing a new or remanufactured PCM the VIN, pinion factor and MRI mileage must be entered. The pinion factor information is the tire size and axle ratio.

When you replaced the PCM, did you use an OEM unit, or an aftermarket unit?
