Brake change results in more problems!?!?

I have a 2001 mercedes s500 and the brakes were in need of replacing. So i did it myself. I replaced both front rotors and the front pads, as well as both rear rotors and pads. I got new brake wear sensors for front and back. Also i replaced the wheel bearings and seals on the front. After i put it all together i take the car for a drive and the ESP warning light comes on as soon as i hit 5mph and it wont let me go any faster!! so i hit the ESP switch on the dash and then the ABS, Air Matic, Brake assist and some other warning sensors all started flashing on the dash. NOW WHAT!?!? i have no idea what i just did. Can someone please give me an opinion or some advice?

This might not be unique to a W220 S500 but since you are new here: Most often problems get the attention of the other actual owners more quickly on your native forum. Just scroll down from this general area until you see the sedans section and look for the W220 forum. Good luck and welcome to BenzWorld!
