Yeah - I also have to think it's related to the work done in that area. Sensor wire is likely unplugged or damaged. Or else it's a pretty big coinkidink.
There are a couple of ABS fuses that will simply disable the ABS, so your brakes would then just work like a car that does not have ABS (can't say that about '02 and later cars because they delete the proportioning valves on all LH's with ABS starting with '02 - so for '02 and later with the ABS disabled, the brakes would not be balanced - could be dangerous). Sorry I'm not with my FSM's to look up the fuse numbers.
'98 LXi - Later Concorde gages (black w/ chrome rings)/'99 LX - LHS gages (white) - HIR bulbs
