2000 taurus ABS issues

2000 taurus with ABS and Traction control. During start up ,the traction light(green) flashes on as it should, but the ABS light does not come on at all. While driving the red brake light comes on and stays on sometimes. ABS light does not come on when the red brake light is on. Fluid in the brake resevoir is full. I am getting a DTC of U1262. Swapped ABS bulb in instrument cluster with a new one. ABS light still off after new bulb installed. Sometimes while driving , the traction light will flash once and the red brake lite will go out at the sametime and stay out.
Can anyone help? all 4 abs wheel sensors are clean and test good!

Fixed it.

It was a bad ABS module (Bosch 5.3) the electrical side.
Replaced it with one from a junk yard for $50 bucks and it now works like a charm!
