Help Non starting 156

Hi all,
I have a 54 plate 156 1.8TS. I took it for an MoT today. When it went in the battery charge was low & they had to jump start it. It wouldn't start. As like a few other post iv'e seen, the engine light flashes & the ECU Clicks in time. The dash says VDC system failure. I have got a new battery & that makes no difference cleaned all the earthing points that i can find.
As in Oimok's post back in June i'm thinking ECU. Can i use a second hand Ecu to find if thats the problem b4 i buy a new one?
Any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks Chris.
