4 DTC's and I have no idea how to repair

I have a 2001 Ranger xlt ex cab 4x4, 4.0L 5speed.

I have my abs lite on and I am getting the codes:
C1095 - hydraulic pump motor circuit malfunction
C1230 - wheel speed sensor rear center

and my air bag lite is on with these codes:
B1877 - Drivers seat belt pretensioner
B1881 - Passenger seat belt pretensioner

I am pretty sure I need to change the sensor in the diff to clear up the C1230. But I have no idea of what to do for the other 3 codes. Any help would be appreciated

These codes are fairly common with 2001+ Rangers especially 2001~2003. Each code is for high resistance in 1 of the pretensioner circuits and the cause is almost always the connectors located under the driver side seat (4-wire) and passenger side seat (2-wire).

One fix is to clean those connectors and then apply a small amount of dilectric grease to the pins before reassembly. If the code(s) come back, the connector(s) may need to be replaced. As with all electrical repairs, the negative battery cable should be removed before beginning.

It is good practice to avoid storing things under the seats because that can aggravate the problem with the connectors.

update:
for the pretension codes. cleaning the connectors and appying dielectric grease did not work on my truck, I am considering just elliminating the connectors entirly and splicing the harnesses together.

I have determined that I need to replace my pretensioners. Does anyone know when the explorers started using pretensioners? or how to simulate good pretensioners? So I can turn my airbag lite off

the only way to solve that problem is to get new pretensioners....why would you want to simulate them...they are a very crucial safety item

You can save some money by just ditching the ABS like i did. I took apart the dash and pulled the bulb out. Problem solved there. THen use that money to fix the pretensioners. Or Hit up a Junkyard.

I work at a junkyard, but the newest ranger at work is a 2000 without pretensioners. and I don't think that any of the explorers at work have them either as the newest one of them at work is about a 1999.
