In the past three monthes, I changed front pads and rotors, and rear pads only.

Now, I find that ABS is engaged more frenquetly than before. As I recall, ABS was only apply in really harsh situation. but now, even some stop sign.

I wander if it is normal due to the new pads? or I messed something when I changed pads. many thanks.

In addition, mine is 4-disk 2000 wagon.

Check the splined ring behind the rotor for dirt in between the teeth, or a heavy build up of rust on the rings (if they're steel, I cannot remember). Also a cracked ring will cause the same results. Just changing the pads and rotors won't cause pre-mature ABS engagement. Also it would be a good idea to check that the wheel sensor is not damaged or possible bent somehow.
