DTC C1288 is related to the pressure sensor of the ABS / ESP pump. This is a known problem of the ABS / ESP pumps that are used in the Focus MK2 / MK2.5 (and many other vehicles). The solution for this problem is replacing the hydraulic part of the pump. On some ABS/ESP pumps it is only possible to reclame the complete pump.

There are also specialized companies which can repair/rebuild the defective pump. They will replace the weak parts which are known causing this problem for uprated parts.

As I understand it Ford used to only supply the complete ABS modulator, for a rather hefty price.

But now they do sell the components needed to repair your existing unit when the pressure sensor has gone belly up.
