Searched my 04 service manual... that message isn't described. Try getting the codes without holding down the button - without starting the engine, rapidly cycle the ignition key on-off-on-off-on and read the codes on the odometer. This doesn't work on all year Jeeps but does work on my '04. Give it a try and see if it displays any codes (format Pxxxx ex. P0305 = misfire no. 3 cylinder) Autozone stores will scan your TJ for you as well.

Let us know what you find.

Both methods will give the same code, and he didn't turn it on, he turned the ignition to the on position, if you actually start it it won't show the code.

tried it this way and it doesn't give an error, just says done.

I've also reset the computer so the light isn't on anymore, but it still gives the error the way I did it first.

If odo reads "done" after cycling the ignition switch, there are no codes. I assumed when I read your original post, that the button you held down in the first attempt was the odo trip reset button? If I remember right, (can't get to TJ right now) holding down the reset button when turning key to "on" position will cycle the gauges and instrument cluster lights. There may be a communications problem across the instrument panel. Or between the panel and the PCI bus. (Chrysler multiplexes communications between sensors, computers and just about everything else through a single wire "bus" called Programmable Communications Interface data bus. My '01 Sebring had this, so I'm guessing your '02 TJ has it too. Seems like a good idea but also seems to take meaningful troubleshooting out of the hands of DIYers)

FWIW, I word searched both "bus 60" and "panel open" in my FSM and got no relevant hits.

Are there any Jeep techs lurking out there?

Bus 60 code

My check engine light went on last night and I got the same bus 60 code.....
Maybe it;s the full moon code.

All my gauges did work and the vehicle ran fine. The light stayed on till the fourth start-up then went out.
