It generally means your computer is having difficulties communicating with whatever system. In other words you are probably in the same boat as me with a fried ECM.

Give the rest of the "U" code and I can tell you what it's not communicating with.

You sure the first letter is a 3? It should be a 0 or 1.

Found a few that started with a 2 but still no 3. Either way it is a computer issue.
