Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

U1120 sets in the powertrain control module when it isn't receiving a wheel distance message from the ABS module, U0120 doesn't show to be a valid code.

You may have a wheel speed sensor issue or the ABS module itself may be going down.

Can you double check the U0120?

Do you have a code reader or scan tool that will communicate with the ABS module so you can see if any codes are set there?

U0121 sets when there is no communication with the ABS module, the ABS module going down is why the wheel distance code is setting.

The problem is either the module itself, a communication bus issue involving just the ABS module, or a lost power or ground to it.

Are there any other items that don't work or other lights that come on when the ABS lights come on?

It started with the speedometer going crazy
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.

That's because the ABS module is going down. I assume the speedometer is the only other issue?

The Trans also went into limp mode

I should replace the abs module

Or should I test all the wheel sensors
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.

The problem is the module, a loss of power or ground or communication bus. At the time the warning lights are on the module's power and ground feeds should be load tested as well as checking bus voltages at the ABS module connector. If ok then the module can be condemned.
