Check engine light and "No Bus" on tripometer

I had been driving for about 5 minutes yesterday, and then the check engine light came on, and on the tripometer it said "no Bus". after 10-15 seconds both the check engine light and "no Bus" message went away. i experienced no other problems with the car during or after that time. i was wondering if there is any thing i should be concerned about because of this. it is a 1999 XJ 4.0L. thank you.

This is a common issue on 97-01 Cherokees. It is a problem with the connections at the back of the instrument cluster. There is no other problems with the Jeep. It often goes away by itself, if not you can whack the top of the dash with your hand.

Here is the real fix, remove the cluster and clean the connections. The Wrangler is similar to the Cherokee - Fix your TJ's dead gauges (write-up) - JeepForum.com

thanks Tim, that is most likely the issue. if it becomes a persistent problem, then i will take a look at the connections.
