The C 1235 code is normally caused by a failed rear differential speed sensor or the wiring to it. You should be able to ohm out the sensor located in the diff housing. If it is open, replace it. If not, remove it and check for missing or damaged teeth on the tone ring beneath it. If the teeth are damaged the differential will need to come apart for inspection. Also, if you find a bunch of metal fuzz on the sensor when you pull it out, it may indicate a failed bearing or gear in the diff also. If the sensor and the tone wheel are in good condition, you will need to check continuity on the wires back to the module and repair as necessary.
