Question ABS and trac control lites on

Just put a new CV axle in the right front of my 2001 Cruiser,now I've got both the ABS light and traction control light on. Did I pop a code somehow? My scanner shows no codes present,but I think this would be the BCM and not ECM. How can I clear it? I just went out and did the key dance and it shows P1684. Driver 4,line 5. WTH?

Check connections and placement of the ABS sensor on that wheel and the toothed wheel it reads off of.
And I believe disconnecting the battery and stepping on brake to fully discharge will reset all codes - if you get it after, then problem persists.
Wheel sensors aren't that expensive if you damaged it doing axle.
