Just dies while driving, then "no bUS" and engine light
Hi, I have a 99 dodge ram van with 70K miles. It's a conversion with an TV/VCR and extra lights, etc. We bought it from my in laws when they were ready to trade it in and haven't had any problems with it until now. Today for the third time I'll be driving usually around 45mph and the engine just dies. All the gauges read in normal ranges before it dies. I pull off on the shoulder (thank goodness it always dies where there is a shoulder) turn off the ignition and wait. If I immediately try to crank it over again it turns over, but won't start and all the gauges don't work and the digital odometer says "no bUS" and the engine lights come on. If i let it sit for a few minutes before I try to crank it, then it starts right back up just like there was never a problem at all. I know the "no bUS" means the computer system isn't communicating, but I'm not sure if that is the root of my problem or not. I've taken it to our regular mechanic with no luck, and I'd really rather not spend the money on the dealer if I don't have to. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
