ABS Light

I have a 1998 Buick Regal GS. Recently, my ABS and Trac Off light began to stay on all the time. It also seems like the brakes drag occasionally. I checked it with an ABS code reader and got all of the following codes:

C1236 Low System Voltage
C1286 ECBM Module turned on Red Brake Lamp Warning Light

I have a brand new battery in the car. The voltage off reads 12.8 and the voltage with it running is around 13.9. I do have a parts car so I can swap parts fairly easily.

If I had the money to take it to a dealership

Do you
