Service ESC warning/Traction light on

I was in an accident several weeks ago in my 2007 Malibu LTZ. The entire right suspension was replaced including hub, strut, control arm, etc. The car drives great but after about a quarter mile the traction control light comes on followed by a "Service ESC" warning. Is there a speed sensor on the rear wheel? Any suggestions of what the problem could be.
