The cost to diagnose the U0001 BUICK code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
Devices connected to the General Motors Local Area Network (GMLAN) serial data circuits monitor for serial data communications on the GMLAN network during normal vehicle operation. Operating information and commands are exchanged among the devices. Each device on GMLAN network maintains a transmit error counter and a receive error counter. The counter values increase with detected errors and will decrease with error-free messages. If the transmit error counter value exceeds 255 the device removes itself from the network and a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) U0001 will be set.
