i have a 1999 dodge durango that has had a diagnostic check and it reads "no bus' does anyone know what i can do about the problem. I've had a new computer put in it and several other things done to it. i've also had some sensors replaced. it runs real rough and the check engine light, brake light, and ABS light. have spent a lot of money and do not want to spend a lot more. Can any one tell me what the "no bus" means and what i am supposed to do about it.

"No bus" means the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) isn't communicating with the rest of the system. The cause may be a short circuit in one of the sensors. Hopefully, one of the experts here can help. Anyone?

Could the sensors that has the short circuit be either the throttle position sensor or the crank or cam sensor. It also backfires at a certain speed when i take foot off gas pedal

Yes, that's possible but we really need some input here from people who know the Durango's technical details.

#504 of 853 2004 dodge durango stalls
Nov 09, 2007 (7:30 pm)
My durango kept stalling at red lights, stop signs, and when I reversed. I went to take it to the dealer and they said I needed a $800 tune up and work up. So I rented a car and as soon as I got my car it stalled again. Took it back to dodge and they said my TPS failed. I had to pay $400 again for something they overlooked the first time I brought it in. I am not taking my car backto Homestead Spitzer Dodge in Miami, Fl

#506 of 853 99 Durango 4x4 SLT......Intermintent ABS and Engine problems?
Nov 12, 2007 (12:12 am)
I have a 99 Durango 4x4 SLT which I love to death but I keep getting faults with it that I cant seem to get corrected.
1) My ABS light comes on when driving over 30mph, but when I shut down and restart the light goes away so they cant diagnose the problem. I have replaced the rear speed sensor and still nothing, I had a whole new rear end assembly put in and all and it went away for a bit but is now back. I heard there are two speeds sensors up front also but don't really know where they are so I cant find them and every time I take it to a dealer or shop they always try to charge me for something else major that is supposedly failing on my Durango so I would rather do it myself if possible.
2) When driving on the Highway sometimes my engine will seem like its missing/cutting out my rpms will flicker up and down and sometimes it will even make my truck shake. It also has stalled on me a couple times and not started for a while afterwards, and when it does start back up after it stalling I usally have to give it gas to keep it running for a few mins until it idles normal again. Once again its not a constant thing so their test machines cant find the problem.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: When I frist bought my Durango used it ran smooth on the road at high speeds, now I have a vibration that no one can find, I have put new tires on, had my tires and wheels balanced, replaced my whole rear end axle assembly as I stated before, new shocks, new ball joints upper and lower, (almost my whole under carriage is new, they took my wife for a ride when I was deployed to Iraq and had her pay about 6000 for almost new complete undercarriage because they told her it was going to break on her, and some of the work I had done before I left) checked for alignment (which they said I didn't need) and yet I still have a vibration when driving at 50mph+.
I have spent alot of money already and don't have the money to spend much more. But I love my Durango and want to keep it so if you can please help me with these issues I will be forever in debt, also sorry if there was posting on this stuff before which I saw some where close but no answers for them. And for it being so long. Thanks

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and the turn signals when switched on stay constant and wont blink. I haven't checked the emergency flashers in a couple of weeks, but when I did check them they would blink for a little while and then stay constant. I have been told that the flasher relay is causing this and the only place I can get it from is the Dodge Service/Dealer and it can run me between $50-$70 just for the part. When stopped it seems to be idling rough. I also believe that there is a factory installed alarm/auto starter on it and if I use the automatic start the check engine light comes on. If anyone knows what could be causing any of these 3 things and possibly knows how to get them fixed could you please let me know.

hi, i was just wondering if anyone ever lowered the brake pedal on a 1999 durango. i used to have a ford ranger, and i'm used to the pedals being right next to each other. the pedal in the durango is about 5 or 6 inches above the gas pedal, and it annoys me to have to keep moving my entire leg in order to brake. i feel like im gonna get in an accident one day. ha ha. i heard the newr models have adjustable pedals, and i was wondering if the old ones did as well.
