I would think it was part of the body control module.

Install a fuel pressure gauge. Key on engine off it should build close to 60psi and back off a few lbs. It should hold steady and not drop off. If it does drop off, replace the pump. Engine running at idle, it should be reading right around 52-54 psi. The engine will barely start/run at 50 psi.

i have been having to remove the hot post from the battery when its not being drove, if not my battery dies, I was told that this is a ground somewhere. ??????? Who told you that ? You have a parasitic drain on the electrical system . Something is staying on or there is a short , maybe one of the computers on the vehicle isn't powering down . GM trucks have instrument cluster problems that can cause this . Can also bring down the class 2 serial data network causing the vehicle not to start . Do you know what class 2 is ? All the computers ,control modules ,what ever you know them by , all share info. send commands etc. on the network .

Not the neutral safety switch. That piece you see on the dash, the PRNDL, has a needle that's controlled by a wire connected to it and on the column collar that's part of the shift lever. Assuming you've a column shift. When the little clip on the wire that holds these, the collar and the needle, comes off, that is what you have to get to, in order to push the little clip on the end of the wire back on the collar. It's directly under the PRNDL but more close to the L.

first up jack up the vehicle and remove the damaged wheel
fit the spare tire and then place an indicator ( rod on a brick ) close to the rim of the spare and turn the wheel
if the axle of hub is bent you will see the rim get closer then further away from the indicator as you turn the wheel
if it is , replace the axle and bearings
if not there will be no axle damage but the bearing could be "brinnelled "( a bearing term where the balls or rollers have been imprinted into the race from impact) in which bearing failure will become evident in 10-20,000 miles
next step is to go and get a rear end wheel alignment done as there could be suspension damage that will cause handling and tire wear problems

Yours looks just like the one I had to replace recently on my 2000 camaro, but mine was on top of the tank. Yours looks much easier to replace. See link below. Fix Your Chevy With Your Own Hand

In general you have to drain the rear end, remove the cover, remove the carrier pin, remove the axles, then remove the carrier from the main shaft and replace the bearings.

might need a special O2 sensor socket to remove, depending on how tight it is. Sometimes you can access it with a wrench

Fritz, Clear codes, Plugs and coils try switching them around, not using the same cylinder, to see if code changes to different cylinder. this would help diagnose bad coil or plug. See links below for full instruction. I have had this code come up because of a bad/dirty fuel injector also. Last link tells what other reasons code could be thrown.

Is this a 4x4? If so, vacuum switch on top of the transfer case and any HVAC parts that are damaged. That might be the part they replaced for you. Is there a hiss coming from the dash controls? If so, you will need to replace the mode switch with one from a junkyard. Otherwise you have to buy the whole control unit. I think it's about $65 bucks from Amazon. Probably $165 from the dealer. Here is some info on an older truck in the link. GMC Sonoma Chevy 10 Transfer Case Vacuum Switch

If the fuel pump is working and it won't crank, then it could be your starter. The easiest way to test that yourself is to use jumper cables hooked directly to starter. Yes that can be dangerous if done wrong. If you do, here's some pointers.
1 - Make sure the vehicle is firmly parked, E brake, neutral, wheel blocks, anything to make sure it won't move.
2 - A standard that's in gear will move when the starter turns
3 - The last time I did this I had the drive wheels off the ground, no chance of moving.
4 - hook up the cables to the terminals on the starter first, making sure the cables are not in the way of belts / fans etc. Then connect them to the battery, only briefly, if it cranks, the problem is with a fuse / wire / computer etc. If it doesn't crank, buy a new starter. Hope I helped, Grim

Check to see if your heating system is properly filled. Air in system can often prevent the proper flow of hot coolant into the radiator core resulting in your issue.
