, I had the same "no bus" all gauges dead on my 2000 ram 1500. after looking at all the different answer posted I tried all of them and the one that worked. Was disconnecting the main plug held down by a screw in the fuse box on the engine compartment. I disconnected, blew the plug and the connect with compressed air, plug it back in tighten the screw and my truck is fine again. Everyhing works as it should. thxMy father in law just had this problem and discovered, with the help of our local mechanic, that there was a short (or a loose connection) in the steering column, possibly caused by the fact that my father in law adjusts the steering wheel every time he gets in or out of the truck. The wires in the steering column are bound quite tightly, and do not allow for the vertical movement of the steering column. Total cost of the repair was $60 cdn. and a case of beer.

your computer is dead.

a "bus" is what the main information transfer lines in a computer are called.

"no bus" means no information transfer.

that one is gonna be SPENDY. most likely a couple thousand dollars.

This does not have to be a computer problem. This can also indicate a loose fuse or a simple bad connection. The bus is simply the ground for the electrical devices in the vehicle. It's a fundamental rule: go for the simple stuff before you spend a pot of money on the complex.

Had a similar problem and the parking brake was the problem and needed adj-. A simple nudge until hearing the parking brake "click" was a quick temporary fix. Only difference was my truck would not start until this was done.

Make this simple for everyone NO BUS gauges not working is a AGGREGATING ASS PROBLEM. However when you fix it you'll kick your self for how easy it was and wont cost you but maybe 5.00. heres the basic your main fuse panel under the hood has a screw in it with a huge contact. that contact has gone bad/ dirty take out the screw blow out the contact with compressed air pack it with electrical grease put it back in put the screw in TIGHT HAND ONLY and watch all your gauges come back to life. I got a great mech here where i live and after 2 diff dealerships telling me buy a new cluster i knew someone was full of it. then one said my brain was dead . MINI NEWS FLASH IF YOUR BRAIN IN YOUR TRUCK IS DEAD YOUR TRUCK WILL NOT START! again very simple 30 mins fix had this problem off n on for 6 years in my 99 ram which i still have and drive on weekends mine is 1999 V-6 with a super chip i take out to joy ride. do what i said above an your problem will be solved. i haven't had another issue with mine in over 2 years and have gone about 14000 miles without gauges failing

Why would your 1999 dodge ram 1500 die while driving with no warning and then when trying to restart it all the gauges come on and the odometer say no bus?

I have a 99 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 4x4 and it was stalling for no apparent reason, I finally gave up and changed out the ecu (the computer). If your having the same issue a quick fix is to turn your ignition off, then back on and leave it on, disconnect the wiring harness from the ecu unit, then plug them back in.(The ecu unit is on the passenger side firewall under the hood). You will see your gauges come back on. If the gauges are not on, you have to redo the process. JWFryer
