No bus on odometer, blinking engine light -- Help please!
Hello all, I'm new to the forums and need some serious help!
I'll cut to the chase. I have an 02 Dodge Dakota Sport 3.9L Auto with 170k miles on it. Its been the most reliable vehicle ever until now. I was stopped at a light and everything just shut off...instantly. No warning.
I am now stuck with a 'No Bus' on the odometer, a blinking engine light, and no fuel pump sound when the ignition is flipped on(no start).
It will crank and crank and crank, but it'll never start.
My code reader wont work because of the no bus communication error between my cluster and my pcm. My battery is fully charged and almost brand new. The needles in all of my gauges stay at the minimum level with the ignition on.

No bus could be anything under the rainbow not letting the computer communicate with the cluster. That's why I gave more details on top of 'no bus'. Other threads state just going straight to the pcm for the problem is a crappy move.
10 minutes at a dodge dealer would have surfaced the pcm answer.
I will test my ignition coil and fuel pump in the morning however.
If I could get a little more insight on this it'd be much appreciated.
