Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P0700 sets in the powertrain control module when there is a fault code in the transmission control module. U0101 sets when there is no communication with the TCM, but without knowing what module this was set in you don't necessarily know if there is a TCM issue.

Do you have a scan tool that can actually communicate with the TCM to see if it is awake, and if so what fault codes are set there?
