You have a loose ground or a bad instrument panel connector, tracking down these kinds of issues is very expensive and time consuming. I must warn you that any thing you do that involves the airbag is very dangerous, and should not be attemped by anyone but the new car dealer with proper repair manuals and test equipment.

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.

What ti do when the check engine light jeep grand cherokee 99 comes on? Also have the Air Bag light on too - is it a sensor issue and can i drive safely with the lights on?

The check engine light may not be a big deal if your Jeep is running OK. The bad news is that the airbag light has to be taken seriously.

It is normal for the airbag light to come on when you start your car and then go off in a few seconds, when the system is performing a self-test .When your airbag light stays on, it means that the circuit that controls airbag deployment has detected a problem. You need to have this looked at by a good mechanic, or preferably a Jeep dealer as soon as possible. It is possible that when there is a problem with the airbag circuitry that it can deploy without warning and can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

I do not recommend that you try to work on any airbag system yourself. The actuators contain small explosive charges that can seriously injure or even kill you. The system is designed to store an electrical charge and airbags can be set off even with the car battery removed. If you set your airbag off and are fortunate enough to not get hurt, replacing it will cause enough pain- $2000 is not unusual.

As far as the check engine light goes.... under the fusebox (near the drivers left knee area) you should see an electrical connector. You can go to any good auto parts store and ask to borrow their ECM analyzer- a handheld device that plugs into that connector and will allow you to read the computer codes that are turning on your check engine light. Just follow the instructions that come with the analyzer.

If you get an ambiguous reading like "factory code" chances are that it is fuel related and changing your brand or grade of gas will usually fix it. While you have the ECM analyzer connected, you can clear the codes and see if the light comes back.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and during the winter, one certain brand of gas will cause the check engine light to come on in the winter. This is because federal and state clean air laws require that in winter months, the gas formulation be changed to help reduce emissions... and different brands actually DO have different formulations. Try a different brand gas for a while. Also, if your Jeep has the "straight six" engine, it is very important that you always run only regular grade- this engine (IMHO one of the best engines ever made!) does not like higher octane fuel and using mid-grade, or especially premium, will give you a check engine light, along with reduced gas mileage.

Service engine soon light comes on and then goes off and back on and the rpm tack jumps about a half grand while driving

The Sensors are losing ground on the engine tap into the ground for the sensors and run the new ground back to the engine negative "-" on the battery, that will stop the check engine light from coming on and going off.

What is the problem when it says no bus or no bu5 not sure which it is but it pops up where the mileage is and the check engine light comeson

Next time that check engine light comes on stop at auto zone or advance auto and ask them to read the codes from your ECM. That will tell you where the problem is.

You need to take it to the dealer. One of the system computers is failing. I do not know that model but it could be either the body computer or dash computer. Good Luck.
