Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

NO BUS 1999 Durango SLT 4X4 drives fine THEN shuts down, no warning. No power sterring, lights, horn, etc. Odometer blinks 3-4 times and then reads 'No Bus'. After 10-15 minutes, starts up. Thermometer has temp of 135 (the one for outside temp up by the compass/mph/miles to empty/ gallons in tank--all at top of truck. push button, switches from english to metric) when truck shuts off. Temp is at 90 or below when it restarts. Doesn't matter what the actual temp is outside. Really need help as last time I almost got run over by a gas tanker and a cattle truck (with full load). Will usually start faster if I buy a bag of ice and put 1/2 on dashboard by steering wheel and 1/2 on hood close to windshield. NO KIDDING!!!! VERY SERIOUS!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

There is a grouping of wires in the engine over the right front tire going to the computer... if you wiggle those till you hear a click in the fuse box on the other side of the engine.. you can start it right up... replacing parts probably wont help.. it sucks i know.. its just dodge. after you get it started up turn on the heat in the vehicle and if its hot outside roll down the windows... the temp will start to come back down ... faster driving speeds will help keep it cool too. stop and go is no good

I have a 1999 Dodge Durango 5.9 Engine and lately it shuts down while I am still driving. I have read several blogs online by other people who own these vehicles and have had the same problem (engine...

Have you check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?
Hi. There is a good chance the pcm is causing this , if especially if the vehicle won't start. There are a few other things that will do it too, a sensor or wiring problem can take the pcm down. We can run through a few things if you have a voltmeter to make sure its the pcm if you want. Checking PCM reference voltage at a sensor that's easy to get to , like the TPS . - throttle position sensor . It's a three wire sensor , one wire is a signal to the pcm , ones is a ground supplied from the PCM an the last is a voltage supplie from the pcm , called a reference voltage . could be 5 , 7 or 12 volts it's a steady voltage not like charging voltage .

The power to the ignition coil comes from the Auto shut down relay. It also runs the fuel pump relay. When you turn the key on it will read 12 volts, but only for about 5 seconds. The auto shut down relay is controlled by the ecm. Check the power on the coil while cranking the engine. When cranking the ecm will lock on the ASD relay.

No power suddenly, wont start because guages wont read

I would start by making sure that battery connections are clean and tight.

Are you getting any MIL or Check Engine light?

Also, are you seeing a message such as "No Bus" or similar in the odometer window when this occurs?

1999 dodge durango slt stalls but restarts (no bus)code shows on the odometer.the truck feels almost like it is running out of gas right before it stalls. could this be water in the gas?

It could be water in the gas.. Get some "dry gas' aditive and follow directions..
It could also be the fuel filter.. Try replacing it..
I have seen this happen on several Dodge's..
The fuel filter gets clogged and choked the engine at idle..

Good luck..

No bus

The connector on the ECU is faulty,The ECU is located on the passenger fender well under the hood,You can try to unplug,Clean and plug back in to see if that helps.

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.
