Seems like something is wrong with your ABS system. Since you couldn't figure that out on your own, might I recommend taking your car to a dealer where they can figure out exactly what needs to be fixed...

I googled a few things and a grounding issue was present, causing the ABS system to fault open (?) . I know where the ABS is grounded, but I can't seem to get the nut lose without turning the whole stud. I am wondering if I cleaned off that bolt and made a better ground, would that help? Funny thing is that I have a similar issue with the wipers with the same ground. Does anyone know a way I can get a wrench around that stud so I can loosen up the nut without breaking the connections that are already present ? If not, then it's off to the dealership or independent shop, I just don't want to pay out of the ass if it is just a grounding issue!

If you thought ground was a problem and you knew what you were doing, you would have jumpered it to good ground already.

C1214 pump relay failed
C1218 pump shorted V+ or GND open
C1243 pump motor failure

Fix the relay. Check the wires. Clear codes, start the car, see how it goes.

Just got the codes about 30 minutes ago, and now just got off Google looking at the info I learned. Ok, replace relay, clear codes, see what happens. If the ground is bad, how do I correct that ?

Just used a old jumper cable to ground from stud to another part of the engine, the ABS light goes out, and this holds after several starts. I take off the jumper and the light comes back on, so I will assume for the moment that I have a bad ground. From the few parts that I removed to get at the stud ( after trying to tighten just the stud since the bolt is stuck on ), I can't seem to see a way to break the nut loose off of the grounding stud without tearing up all of the other connected wires. So, it looks like I have to create a good jumper from the stud to another grounded part of the engine if I want the ABS light and windshield wipers to operate. A cheap and easy fix until I get the itch to tear something up.

Thanks for all your help !

To the helpful ones, thanks for your suggestions. I constructed a new jumper for my ground out of some 8 gauge wire I had laying around. I connected it to the old ground point and another part of the engine, and my ABS works fine. No lights, all is well.

For you others who want to had a little attitude, well... Thank the Lord that you are able to wake up in the morning and do what you do... Pray
