On the 2005 Toyota Sequoia, The C1223 is just a general code that only states there is a problem somewhere in the ABS/VSC System. The C1251 narrows that down a bit more and points to the problem being with the ABS Pump Motor. On this vehicle, the pump motor is internal of the Brake Actuator/Skid Control Unit. Some testing will need to be done on the wiring to the unit making sure there are no opens or shorts. And to other items in the ABS/VSC systems. But, more commonly, the Brake Actuator/Skid Control unit will need to be replaced. The unit sells for a little over $700. The Labor Time Guide calls for 1.6 hours to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bottom line. For a job of this type, a “fair” labor rate can be anywhere from $85-$125 per hour.
