Hi there good morning to you
Ok your fault lies with a faulty brake pressure sensor (very common on the (mk60) ABS/ESP pump fitted to the focus /focus st this is why you get fault code c1288 -brake pressure sensor circuit
This brings on the traction control light not the abs light
A diagnostic fault code check will clarify this
The Brake pressure sensor is located inside the ABS/ESP pump And cannot be changed seperatley
Ok the ABS /ESP pump can be unbolted from the ABS module (you do NOT need to replace the full unit as I suspect this is what Most people assume
The ABS /ESP. pump. Now costs £165 +vat and takes around 2 hours to fit bleed and configure the internal sensors of The pump
Ford reduced the price as there was so many problems with them
