Default ABS Error code 61-1 Battery Voltage malfunction


New to the forums, starting off. I am very new to working on cars (in fact I don't know jack-nothing) and am having the expensive dealer recommended 60k mile Honda service being done (the first service besides oil changes this car has had) since I've been the owner. Its a 2006 Honda EX or maybe LX Coupe.

I'm getting one engine error code, more specifically p2185 - engine coolant temperature sensor 2 circuit high. Now i've heard this can be due to occilating temperature and humidity extremes, and so on so I'm not to worried.

But now, (other than the wrentch light which tells me to get the oil changed / air filters / tires rotated) I'm also getting an abs error code - 61-1 battery voltage malfunction.

What is my best course of action here? I know it's not the battery, and if it doesn't resolve itself in the tune-up and scheduled maintenance that I'm at a loss for what to do. It originally came to my attention when the car was having trouble starting up one morning this winter, but that resolved itself as I have had no more starting troubles? I guess the best somebody with my skill level can do is clear the error codes and see if they resurface, and have them diagnosed by an auto shop?

Thanks for your time in reading my shpel, and happy holidays!
