Customer Question

hi, 04 silverado 2500hd 6.6 turbo diesel. I have these codes. U1003,U1009, P0840, P0842 and P0700. I'M wondering if the pressure switch manifold might be bad and how difficult is it to replace

Customer: was driving home, engine light came on, went into limp mode and I believe it is just staying in 5th gear but don't quote me on that

So about your vehicle,

the U codes which are communication codes many say otherwise. Give me a few moments to review the codes and see what we can find.

Ok, so the U1003 and U1009 could be a problem with engine or chassis grounds. I suggest checking those, namely on the frame under the drivers door and the side of the engine.

As for the other codes, yes the pressure switch manifold is a possible suspect. What I suggest prior to simply replacing it is to check your wiring and connections at the transmission module on the fan shroud, check the wiring to the round connector making sure there is not too much sideways tension on it. If those don't show issues and the wiring does not look like its damaged, then the pressure switch manifold may be bad. Its easy to replace, dropping the transmission pan and replacing the assembly is as far as that goes.
