Finished fork swap now ABS problems

Hey so a few weeks ago I crashed and cracked one of my forks i just finished replacing and and went for a test ride. All suspension seemed good but when I hit the brakes hard(which i was doing a lot to test front forks) the front wheel was locking up and I was doing little stoppies. I never really try to do them before, but I thought that abs would eliminate all possibilities of lockup anyways. I have a few thoughts, but want to double check with the experts
1. I was only going like 5 mph so does abs not kick in that low
2. abs needs to recalibrate itself or something.
3. abs is broken lol
I don't need abs, but seeing as i have it. it would be good if it worked

If theres a problem with the ABS the warning light should come on and stay on (providing it has carried out the self test and the bike has hit a speed greater than 6 mph)

The ABS also does not work under about 4 mph.

Give it a try at a higher speed and make sure the warning light comes on when first started up and goes off and stays off when your riding.

Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one. Some of them stink.

A bit of reading and you'll have a chance to filter the bullshit from the good oil
