wheel speed sensor

the yellow warning lights (abs, dsc, handbrake and runflats) came on. the car was diagnosed and 2 wheel speed sensors were faulty (front left and rear left). if i replace these parts myself, will the dash error lights disappear by itself? or will it need resetting? thanks!

i'm pretty sure that as soon as the wheel speed see's itself working it shuts the light off, however it may store a code, i cant remember its been a while

dunno if that helps

btw, my car has only 3,493 kms. acquired it november 2009, so most of the time it's just sitting in the garage. is this a factor on the wheel speed sensors failing?

When I had this issue, it required a code clear before it would go out. (My sensors weren't bad, but I did something goofy that threw sensor codes)
