Hey, I have a 2001 3.5 and I recently replaced the passenger side wheel bearing. I also have new tires. I notice that when I do a hard acceleration, the light comes on but goes off when turned back on and the ABS still functions when I press the pedal and lockup.

i believe autozone can scan it free . most of the time its one of the hub bearings.

I managed picking up an OTC scanner that does both for about 60 bucks, so I found my connection at the wheel bearing is eratic, reads 0, and makes my abs sometimes work on very light braking. So I think my connection wasnt clean or tight.
It is literally impossible to place the bearing on backwards. The hub assembly comes complete with the wheel studs. There's only three bolts that bolt it down to the knuckle. If you bought the cheaper part, chances are it already went bad. that is what happened to me. I bought a cheap replacement part and it went bad in about 6 months so I replaced it with Moog and it's night and day in comparison. I'd say your hub bearing is bad.
