ASC light and ABS light are on after M3 brake swap

So I had the front brakes upgraded to M3 brakes, and the ABS sensors were seized on the non M brakes so I need either new sleeves or entire ABS sensors. They finally came out but the sleeves remained on the old brakes and I'm not sure if they work now.

Anyone know if it's normal for the ASC light to come on AS WELL as the ABS light when there's no ABS sensors in place in the front?

Also, anyone know what the ABS sensors are worth?

I did the M3 brake swap last summer, and I had the same problem, Its is perfectly normal for the ACS light to come on when the ABS light comes on.

New sensors are about 100 each, I got used ones on ebay for $20 each and they work fine.

I got my brakes and sensors from these guys,
