I've gotten this, too, and I looked it up and found no mention of a no bu5. I have no idea what it means. Do you have a link to it in the FAQ?

I dont know what's wrong with your truck but going to FAQ and doing a search for "no bu5" yielded 0 results.

I have a feeling its just a part of the programming, and it's nothing to be concerned about. Maybe someone will know.

There's nothing wrong with mine. I was just randomly checking for codes and it came up. I can't remember if it always did it or not.

"no bus" means the "bus"( used to let various modules communicate to each other and the PCM) is not working, could be a bad connection behind the cluster, or bad connector completely. i've heard there was a TSB for this problem, not 100% sure as I havnt had this problem.

if it were me, i'd pull the cluster and check all the connections behind it really well and make sure all the blades have good contact.

Temporary fix is to pound the top on the dash until you can get in there. Usually gets them to reconnect.

That or a big bump in the road.

To the OP, what kind of cluster problems are you having? I got the same code, but I don't have any problems. Everything works fine, that's why I ignored it. I'm going to give it a shot in a couple minutes when I head home and see if I still get it a few weeks later.

as mentioned, it is the connection to the guage cluster at the back, (in the dash)

it is most commonly cured by removing the cluster, very slightly 'bending' the pins outward to make better contact, and re-installing. some also use a small amount of di-electric grease...

"guages quit working"

just give the pins a gentle twist (careful not to break them) hasn't happened since i did the fix 3 years ago.

For the short term i used to hit the horn with the side of my fist (a couple quick/solid taps should do)

and while you're back there might as well pull the bulb for the shift light!!!!

looking for ground info...my 99 xj has the no bu5 in the od..and i have already gone to a dealer and had the above mentioned sb preformed...didn't change a thing......hit the power door locks to the locked position and hold it there and every thing works,,,map lites seem dim though when you do this..but they don't fuction at all if yu don't hold the pdl in locked position...fuel gauge is the only gauge that operates after you hold pdl in locked position and release it....everything else goes dead in cluster..........

Guys - check your battery or system voltage. A little voltage drop will do this and other weird things. If things make no sense all ways check the power supply - in your computer at home and on the jeep.
