Thanks for the update, ECU 128 is for an engine fault which designates engine ECU. I will need all the other numbers/letters after the 128 for the actual fault code. Let me know

Code is ECU 128 I have the bus in a garage about 1 mi away so takes me a little bit to get back to you.the bus ran fine when I shut it off about 9 mo ago.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Hi, 128 is not the fault code it means engine ECU has detected a fault and logged it in memory. You need scroll through to the next screen to get the fault code numbers or plug in a scan tool. Most Frieghtliners have a mode/reset switch to press and hold to scroll through fot the faults and diagnostic screen and menus. Let me know

Icu 140 is the message identifier for the instrument cluster. The fault codes are accessed by scan tool or by scrolling the next screen
