You probably have sawzalled/disconnected one of the signal cables, going to the rear hubs. The signal cables for the rear run through the right door sill. The right one goes straight through the tunnel next to the gas tank, while the other one runs in front of the gas tank, under the metal cover.

Try pulling both wires at the rear wheels. If one happens to be loose or pull through, that's your problem.

EDIT: also check your fuse
