No Bus means the engine computer is not communicating with the body computer or the transmission control module.
I would check the power and connections for the engine computer first.

SOURCE: 95 dakota cranks but wont start

Well I'm a chrysler master tech & this is a little odd. There's alot of things not in the question so here are mine. I'm assuming it's a 3.9 no 4wd. When did this happen? When you check for power do you have some one turn the key on while you check? If still no power then make sure all the fuses are good from the one under the hood to the one inside the cab. Next be sure to check the grounds. You'll need to by a manual like a Haynes in order to get a decent wiring diagram. In a worst case senario the main power box under the hood has an issue & the asd relay gets no power,hence no start. Ran into it on a 95 caravan & it took a week to figure it out & no replacement was available & I had to hard wire it so it would run. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My fuel pump isnt getting

If the fuse and relays are good, then it is most likely a wiring problem.

First using a test light or meter, make sure you have power to the fuse when the ignition is on.
With help from someone, make sure the relay is engaging. This can be done by feel (should be a faint click when engaged) or with a meter.

From there, trace the wiring to the fuel pump.

Check fuses first, but could be needs new CPU

Posted on Jun 15, 2012

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help, we checked the fuses even swapped out the relays. The CPU was a thought but someone else tried it and it didn't work. Might still try it though. Is there any other symptoms that would indicate the CPU is bad? We changed out the ignition switch, 135.00, changed the CPS, 42.00. I hear the CPU is about 150.00. When we run the tester it comes back with no error codes."

My 2001 Dodge Dakota, 4.7 liter engine starts, but after it warms up won't start back until it sits for several hours


Could possibly be a short or open wire. As a rebuilder, I see these computers a lot. The engine computer (ECU) should be mounted under the hood, passenger side near the air filter. You can also identify issues by scanning the fault codes. I would be more then happy to help you define the codes if you can get them

What happend my 650bmw 40000 needs new engine out of warraty


Hi,
If you have a paperwork trail for the oil leaks and that you've told them, open a call/case w/the BMW USA - not the dealer.

And for $12,000 you may want to hire a lawyer.

92 dodge dakota 5.2 4x4 won't stay running, hard


What fault codes do you have? to check for fault codes using the check engine light blink method do the following, turn the key to run and then off, then to run and then off, then to run and watch the check engine light, count the blinks, there will be a pause and then more blinks, that is the code(s) So lets say it blinks 2 times and then 5 times, that is code 25. Google the code or codes under the heading: "Dodge OBD1 fault codes"

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

Changing from 98 2.5 man.tranny,to 01 3.9


WOW. You want to put a 3.9 ltr V6 from a 2001 Dakota into a 1998 Dakota with a 2.5 ltr 4 cylinder? And you want to keep the manual trans? Have you considered what you will be using for a fuel and engine managment system? If you have a wrecked truck as a host vehicle then the changover may work. But it will take patience and a lot of work. I don't think the 4 cylinder trans will bolt up but I am not sure - never tried that. However that light duty trans will probably not handle the torque for very long even if it did bolt up. Your local Auto Salvage Yard will have a changeover guide and be able to tell you if that trans will fit either engine. My recommendation is to swap everthing and change that 98 to a 01, auto trans and everything.
Good Luck
Let me know how it goes?
