    I was driving on I-75 in Kentucky all of the sudden the truck lost power and engine stall. It doesn't want to turn on all I am getting is (Vehicle VCU needs maintenance) I tried to get a diagnostic on the engine ecm and communication fails.
    All I get is a code through the vcu it is the following.

    MID 144 PSID 200 FMI 9

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Check your batteries..... Sounds like you might have lost power to the ecm..... Loose ground wire.....

    I also checked all the cables that goes from the battery and the fuse it all looks OK some rust but I cleaned up as good as I can and nothing. It won't turn on.

    Try checking your coolant levels, oil, and temp gauges if you haven't already.

    OK, just to be clear,

    1) its not turning over?
    2) OR its turning over but just not starting?
    3) OR/& You turn the key on & get instrument indications & warning lights etc but nothing else?

    You have a broken wire that powers the ecm... or it's grounding out on the frame somewhere.... Pull the power plug on the ecm n test it with your multimeter
