    I have the same problem. I purchased the 1999 Dodge Durange used with 140K and about four days later it stalled on us and have not quit since. When it shuts off it will stay off for about 5 to 10 minutes then start back up. I agree that it would be the computer chip. So we will get that replaced and then I will write back to let you know how it goes.

Mine needed a new pcm when it started just quitting for no reason and then not starting again for anywhere from 30 minutes to hours later. the dealer did not want to replace this, even though I had investigated it on my own and knew what the problem was. they made me pay for a ctm or soemthing like that first and that did not fix problem then they wanted to put black box on vehicle to see what happens when it quits, I had to threaten to sue them if this happended and my family was injured, this is very dangerous, took me hours on the phone demanding they replace pcm, see it was still under warranty and they did not want to to pay....but the new pcm fixed it.....hate DODGE

I had the same problem. The dealer had to replace a $700.00 dollar computer chip. This chip also ran the fuel system and made the car idle at a higher rpm and lower rpm whenever it wanted.

A bad crank or cam sensor can cause a no bus situation and would cause it to time it does it if possible check for spark at the plugs

This might be the cheapest way to get your durango moving again. I have the same problem, and I solve it with a zip-lock bag of ice. As soon as your computer is cool enough it should start again, and die when it gets hot. Keep your computer cold with ice. there is probably a microswitch at the root of your problems. and hopefully it's not the on board computer.

Dodge Durango Won't Start, Turns over, NO BUS on instrument cluster

1998 - 1999 Dodge Durango 3.9L
2000 - 2001 Dodge Durango 4.7L
1998 - 2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L
1998 - 2001 Dodge Durango 5.9L

The PCM has 3 connectors plugged into it. Try wiggling each connector and listen for a clicking sound, starting with the connector furthest from the front of the Durango, and the middle connector with a white top.

If this doesn't help, replace your PCM. The PCM (power control module) can get hot, causing a short or broken circuit inside the module. Replacing the module will fix the problem. If your truck dies randomly when it's hot outside, but will start back up after it cools down, this is probably the problem.

I have had the misfortune of my 99 durango come up with the no bus several times in the last 2 years. Each time it was the PCM (computer). The problem is that even the dealer can not help to much because Chrysler only referbs PCM if your car is to old. I am now stuck with constantly replacing **** PCM . I love my Durango , but this sucks.
You should read for computer problem codes and go from there.

What is the problem when it says no bus or no bu5 not sure which it is but it pops up where the mileage is and the check engine light comeson

Next time that check engine light comes on stop at auto zone or advance auto and ask them to read the codes from your ECM. That will tell you where the problem is.

1999 Durango: while driving down the road my rpm gage drops to z...

this sounds like a bad connection or a bad VSS sensor... either way it needs replacement/repair.. if the tach sends 0 info to the ECM the car will quit or run in an open loop causing it to run real poor... have someone like Auto Zone??? scan it for free and give you the computer code results.... this will help you unravel the mystery of the stalling.

2005 dodge durango driving down the road,

Are you actually hearing the engine speed change as well when this happens, or just seeing the tach needle make crazy readings??

If only the tach is being funky, then I would say a speed sensor on the tranny is on its way out. There is also a speed sensor on the rear axle of some Durangos that can cause this issue.

No Bus Error

All the modules are connected together to communicate with each other via the PCI bus. It is possible that one of the modules is pulling the bus down.Since the vehicle won't start it could be any one of the modules. It will be a process of elimination to find the faulty one by disconnecting them one at a time. Here are a few, powertrain control module (the one you replaced) Instrument cluster, overhead console, anti-lock brakes, airbag. Since the cluster unplugged wont read anymore, just try to start the vehicle to see if that was the one. Otherwise see if the odometer message of "no bus" goes away after each one is unplugged.

1999 dodge durango 5.9 cranks but wont start no fire to coil,auto shut relay buzzes,has no BUS code on odometer,

It is your computer. I had this recently as well. No Bus means no connection to the on board computer. There is a company in Florida that repairs these computers, so don't get suckered in by the dealership for 750-1000.
