C1243 has to do with the BPMV (brake pressure modulator valve) part of the ABS anti-lock brake system) PUMP MOTOR STALLED.C1242 refers to the BPMV PUMP MOTOR GROUND CIRCUIT OPEN.C1255 refers to Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module Internal Malfunction (Antilock Brake System/Traction Control System Disabled).They all 3 refer to the ABS.
