The other night I stopped to get Pizza with the kids. Trucks running same as ever on the way there. I go to leave and the truck starts fine but none of the gauges are working. They are all lit but none of the needles moved. I jiggled the key thinking it was something in the switch. And instead of the miles showing it said "no bus", I was afraid to shut it off with my kids in the Jeep. When I got it home I shut it off and restarted it and it was fine.
I figured it was nothing, but then this morning on my way to work the "check Gauges" light came on and my Voltmeter wasnt working at all. I was afraid to shut it off with the freezing rain and it being 2 in the morning. I got to work shut it off and restarted it and it was fine again.
Anyone know what the no bus is all about?
Any other ideas?

You may need to remove the guage cluster, then remove the electrical connection, carefully clean the connector pins, add some dielectric grease, then reassemble. then check the ground strap behind the drivers side kick panel, make sure it's clean and secure. This procedure will fix your symptoms most of the time.
