Disconnect your CPU, this will reset the your CPU. If it happens once more, do the same thing this time keep a small bag of ice on it to keep it cold untill you can get it to the shop. there is probably a microswitch at the root of this problem.

Engine will not fire. Code no bu5 shows on odometer panel. No gauges are working,however have all interior power. Replaced battery because had dead cell or!!!

Check the PCM connections, it may be that the computer or PCM is BAD since its not sending any data to display, be sure to check all connections to the PCM and any electrical connections that are visible by the engine compartment and under the dash.

My 99 dodge durango has a 'no bu5' code on the mileage abd it wont start at all. how do i fix this?

No bus message on the instrument cluster mean's there is a serial data bus problem . All the module's (computers) on your vehicle are connected on the CCD data network . They share information on the network . A shorted bus wire , a module malfunctioning an bring down the network can cause modules not to send and receive data which would cause a no start .

No bu5 code after engine dies and gauges die

I am no truck expert but I had a similar problem with a car a few years ago and it was a ground issue; because it was only loose it was really difficult to trace! Just check it out?

2001 durango missing during acceleration

it could be a number of things, you could have a coil pack misfire or poor signal from the cam sensor, however on 96 and newer cars the ECM should detect and throw a code(check engine or service soon light) if could be clogged fuel injectors or a fuel filter or a leaky fitting causing air to enter the sytem. if it where me i would insure there are no codes store in the ECM (some codes will stored, flash the check engine light once and go away but the code is still there) if no codes are present then you can either test a fuel pressure with a gauge at the service port, or start running fuel system cleaner through your engine and see if it starts running any better. also sometimes when the fuel pump relay starts to go out it will cause the fuel pump to stutter. but most often when they go out they simply stop working all together. sorry if this solution seems a little expansive but its the best i can do for you without actually being there myself. hope this helps

There is a drain on the battery somewhere and then all gauges stop working and get code bu5

No bus refers to the communication bus between all the computers. These are the wires the computers share information on.
When you cluster says no bus it means the cluster can't communicate on the bus.
The whole bus network could be down or the cluster could be defective. Any module on the bus could fail and bring down the bus too

Inside temperature guage has stopped giving A correct reading it is stuck on 68 degrees. Started last week. Any ideas on what could be causing this problem?

Taking out the gauge cluster and having a look at the gauge would be recommended, it might be the gauge motor either stuck or burnt, you might need solder another motor ( they are very small motors, moving gauges up and down).

Oil pressure gauge goes down when i make a stop and goes back up when i take off. after a while the emission light appears on console

Check the oil sending unit.

Is it a leaker?

Also check the wire from the oil sending unit.

It can be ground to the frame or motor.

Use nylon tie to make sure it's secure and the wire insulation is in good shape.


You can get an OBDII code reader and get the code easily,

Get the PXXXX code(s) and post it on the comment window.

I will follow up later.

Engine idles up and down and when I come to a stop

Check for a clogged/bad IAC motor. It is what controls the idle of the vehicle. Sounds like yours is malfunctioning.
