OkThe first two codes you gave me are for the immobilizer. This means the computer doesn't recognize the key anymore and has shut the fuel injector off. This can be testing if it will start and run briefly on carb cleaner or starting fluid.The U codes are for the lan system, basically it means one of the modules isn't communicating with the computer. I suspect the immobilizer may be the root cause of the truck not starting, and the poor running could be an issue with one of the control modules. Although it might be running bad when it does run because of plugged up catalytic converters. I have also seen this prevent the trucks from starting if they are in really bad shape.I would start by getting the key programmed if the light is on while cranking the engine.
