From the official Durango shop manual......(abbreviated)

Self Diagnosis Test

Vehicle key position is OFF ,or able to pull key out.
Hold in the trip odometer button (dont release yet)
Turn key to the ON position (one notch), but DON'T try to start the engine
Continue holding the trip button for about 10-12 seconds until CHEC appears in the odometer display
Release the trip button.
Series of three digit numeric failure codes may appear.
If no failure message appears, the self diagnostic test will proceed as described in step 6


Code Chart

110- cluster CPU,RAM,EEPROm failure, replace cluster

900-CCD data bus not operational, check CCD data bus connections at cluster, check the cluster fuses,check the CCD data bus bias, cehck the CCD data bus voltage, check the CCD data bus terminations.

920-cluster is not recieving a vehicle speed message from the PCM, check PCM software level and reflash if required, use the ($2500+) DRBIII scan tool to verify the vehicle speed message is being sent by the PCM

921-the cluster is not recieveing a distance pulse message from PCM,check PCM software level and reflash if required, use the ($2500+) DRBIII scan tool to verify the distance pulse message is being sent by the PCM

940-the cluster is not recieving an airbag lamp-on message from the ACM, check the CCD data bus connections at the ACM, check the ACM fuse.

950-cluster not recieving an ABS lamp-on message from the CAB, check CCD data bus connections at the ACM, check the ACM fuse.

960- clsuter not recieving a PRND21 message from the TCM, check the CCD data bus connections at the TCM, check the TCM fuse.

999-An error has been discovered, record the failure message, depress the trip odometer reset button to continue the Self-Diagnostic Test

Step 6
Instrument cluster will test each segment of the odometer (all first, then each one seperately)

Step 7
Bulb test

Step 8
Gauge test

Step 9
test completed

The instrument cluster will return to normal operation at the completion of test, if ignition switch turned off, or a vehicle speed message indicating movement recieved from the PCM on the CCD data bus.

Hope that help you or anyone else in future.

SOURCE: my odometer code no bus

Check for a faulty crank sensor. Sounds strange, but we found this out the hard way in the dealerships,many years ago. Following the trouble tree usually lead to pcm replacement, and it still wouldn't run.

Dakota - 2001, started, died and won't start. all dash indicators light as normal except odometer says "No Bus."


Hi, if odometer say no bus you are loosing your bus signal some were ,with out a bus signal the car not going to run the bus signal runs to every module on your truck. This could be as easy as a blow en fuse to a wire shorted out or a bad module . Depends on your know how around cars . If your not sure you should take to local shop or dealer. If i can help you further just re post.
Thanks dodge tec

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?

Hi, Autozone will scan your vehicle for free 1997 and newer vehicles. Your brake fluid being low will also make the brake light go on. Ihope this helped you out. Good luck, .....MIKE-

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.

No bus


As far as the first question, can you get a PCM with the same number, yes.

Can you discribe what happened prior to the "no bus" message?
