Are you sure of that code U8100 and not u1800?

Yes accident sorry...typing for my husband while he is under the hood

You need to go back to the shop that programmed the computer cause that code is for diesel engines, It's looking for an FICM (Fuel Injector Control Module) which your truck does not have

It was the Chevy dealership

Let them know

Sorry U1000 code

Ok that sounds more related to your truck. U1000 is no communication between PCM (main computer) to BCM (Body control Module) Check for loose or corroded ground connectors there's a green wire between the 2 that I read it goes bad. If not you need to have the BCM checked

Best Answer

Could a bad BCM stop it from firing and and stop the fuel pump relay from priming

Pulled wiring harnesses yesterday someone had pinched wires between transmission, replaced those wires it started working. I would crank it then I would give it gas, it would die. Now it ain't firing at all. I'm at a loss and in usually a pretty good diagnostic guy.
