I have a 2005 Dodge Stratus error code P0700 when the light comes on it wont shift out of 2nd gear. Where is the sensor located?

Code 700 is a generic code that means there is a problem with the transmission control module. It could be the module, or something else causing the module not to work correctly.
You would need a scanner and a repair book to get the test procedure.

A no bu5 message appears on the dashboard

that message is probably "no bus" which means the instrument panel is not communicating with the body computer or engine computer.
It could be a bad connection in the wiring or a problem with the cluster.
You can do an internet search for "no bus" for details.

No instrument panel. Truck runs great. No BuS signal on panel

You will need to check the wirings connections and ground connections.Remove the instrument cluster panel .Check the powers and grounds in the 3 cluster connectors.You will most likely find that all is ok. There are 4 battery feeds and 4 grounds wirings ,that are to be checked.Make sure you check for voltage with the key on.The 4 ground wires go back to 2 ground spots. 1 also runs the shift interlock and the amplifier, the other ground runs the clock-spring in the sterring column, the ignition switch, the sentry key module, and the headlamp switch. if any of these grounds are loose then truck will start but instrument panel will not work.There may be a fusible link wire at the alternator. The ground wire for the instrument panel has came loose on it or one of the fusible links have blown on it.Check the ground wires first,then look for the fusible link that comes off the alternator or the one from the starter one of them will probably be burnt. ----------------------- As you mentioned,its not showing no bus.This indicates its not PCM.The bus directly communicates with PCM.But if its not showing no bus then its faulty instrument panel itself or its wirings are short or the BCM itself is faulty and needs replacement. ------------------ Also click this link below to check the fault.Its directly from the manual for more troubleshooting:--- --------------------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Where is the fusible link for 1999 dodge ram

I know that fusible links on GM cars come directly off of the starter positive terminal. They can be identified by looking for a cylindrical (3/4" long by 1/2" in diameter) barrel of plastic on a colored piece of wire. If the technician pulls on a fusible link which is about 8" long (replacement), then the wire insulation will stretch by about 1" to 3" indicating the wire inside has broken.
I looked up fusible link on the 1999 Dodge Ram and came up with this information which is a little bit different as far as form factor:

Fusible Links Removal & Installation All Engines To Remove:
NOTE: If a generator cartridge fuse fails, be certain to inspect and test the vehicle charging system before replacing the cartridge fuse and returning the vehicle to service.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • The negative battery cable
    • The cover from the Power Distribution Center (PDC)
    • The two screws securing the generator cartridge fuse to the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • The generator cartridge fuse from the PDC
To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • The generator cartridge fuse onto the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • The two screws securing the generator cartridge fuse to the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • Tighten the screws
      1. Torque to: 30 in. lbs. (3.4 Nm)
      NOTE: Ensure that both screws are tightened to the proper torque values.
    • The cover onto the PDC
    • The negative battery cable
