Here is the phot of my original bearing vs the new one I purchased.
In the photo: The shiny part just inside the brown ring is where the reluctor is. If there is a metal filling or some other ferrous metal contaminating it you can have issues.
As mentioned you need to see the VDC (ABS) codes which a basic code reader won't show. If you had the capability to read VDC live data you could see the sensor outputs and that would tell you where the problem is. Even better use an oscilloscope to look at the sensor waveforms. Since you don't have that capability you are blind and will have to guess.
If you have not pulled the axles and looked at the reluctors that would be my next step if I were in your situation. If you question whether the bearing has the reluctor you can test with a piece of steel - there are magnets in the reluctor.
