Ok... Based on what your saying it sounds like you have a fuel problem. Your symptom is not common for an electrical problem. The pump sounds like it is having a hard time building and holding fuel pressure. (note this could also just be a restricted fuel filter). If it were me I would check the fuel pressure and see if it is to spec. If you dont have a guage try changing the fuel filter. If the problem is still present then get a guage on it and check the pressure of the pump. Good luck!

My truck some times dies on exceleration and ruff ideal than runs fine

I had the same problem with my 93 K2500 it only has 159000 on it. It was my catalytic converter, drop the Y pipe going into your exhaust manifold then drive it. You should feel an immediate difference. You can replace it or cut it open if your state doesn't have emission laws. It cost me around 250 and a couple hours of work.

Zafira 1.6 petrol 4 injectors open when hot

I woud suspect if it is all 4 it is an open circuit in the wireing. When faulting & won't go follow the injector wireing back from the injectors & slightly bend the wireing harness while someone is cranking the vehicle. Pay particular attention to where the harness runs near the exhaust (if it does) & check for any melted parts of the loom or conecting plugs. Also disconnect the loom at the 1st place along the loom & look at the connector for anything unusual.

Runs rough once it warms up

With having that many miles and the light being on with a code of O2 sensor, I'd say start there. Make sure which O2 sensor it is first, pre or post convertor. It's getting close to another tune up, but check your plugs first.
