Hi my name is roy will try to help. make sure your check engine light is coming on with the key on. If not then your ECM is not responding. Check the ECM inline fuse between the battery compartment and the ECM and the connections for any corrosion or poor connections and make sure you are getting power to your ECM with the ignition switch on. Make sure your grounds are clean and tight. Check your pins and connectors at your ECM for any loose/corroded pins. Here is a code list that should be helpful... Let me know if you need further assistance.

check engine and stop engine does a bulb check
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 2 years ago

it sounds like your vcu has failed. if you have power to the vcu and no communication, chances are good that it has failed.

Alright, leaning towards bad vcu, anyone know if the new vcu needs programmed or is it plug and play
Technician: Jeremy, Certified Truck/Bus Technician replied 2 years ago

It will need programming. It is the brain of the truck.
