What this means is that the dash has lost it BUS type communication with one or more of the other control modules [computers] To diagnose this you would need a scan tool that can communicate with the various control modules to see if there are any service codes or modules that have quit talking to other modules for some reason. Best bet on this one might be a trip to the dealer or a very good repair shop.

My instrument panel lights up but nothing on it works. Speedometer, tach, gas gauge, nothing. All the message lights are on. In the odometer/tripmeter window in says: no bus. Truck runs just fine.


There may be a problem with the connection or the wiring harness between the instrument cluster and the body computer.
No Bus means no signal or power on the line between the two computers.

My dodge ram 1500 4.7 quad cab gets terrible gas milage. my 03 got at least 16 in the city and 20 on hwy a 4.7 . this 04 wants to get 12-14 city and 17 on hwy. oh it has 20inch tires could that be a major...


If 20" tires weren't factory, your speedometer and odometer could be off by as much as 20%. Find a stretch of highway and watch odometer between two mile markers and check if it's accurate. Also depending on options, load, quality of fuel and regular maintenance have a large bearing on MPGs also make sure tire pressures are up.

My 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 stalls out while I'm driving and a No Bus signal comes on the odometer reading. It starts again usually after a few minutes but how can I fix this?


i had a jeep that flashed that and wouldnt start i ended up replacing the pcm(engine computer) after checking the wire harness and connection if im not mistaken the pcm is in a place where it can be exposed to water so it might have water damage hard to tell without the truck but the bus signal is a state of health from the computer like a self diagnostic of it so without the signal it wont run hope this helps good luck

2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 4x4 motor turns over but will not start. ran fine the day before. the odometer reads no bus, check engine light comes on and gas gauge does not read now what could be causing...


First check is a look in the fuse box for a blown or loose fuse and also push all relays into their sockets. The check engine light shows that a trouble code is registered in the computer. Rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repairs.

Fuel pump stops running


HI. this could be a ecm issue. i would take this vehicle in for a look at the fuel pump wires and to check out the ecm as well. these are unusual issues that you are experiencing.

Possible electrical short.

2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.


You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.
