Default ABS and TRAC codes

So, after power washing the engine compartment of my 2002, the ABS and TRAC codes have come on and stay on. I'm guessing one of the wheel rotation sensors is damaged or has crud on it?

That is a strong possibility.
I had a sensor go bad - first it would only act up when wet (just when you needed ABS), then it stayed bad.
I took it to mechanic since I didn't know how to find which one was the bad one - they did...

Look over the wires going to each sensors and check the plug ends for corrosion and water. Also look for a notch with junk stuck in it.

In 2002, all 4 wheels. (I believe later on they changed it).
