ENGINE DIES WHEN DRIVING

Dodge Ram

1999 Dodge Ram 318 manual trans 140,000 miles.

Engines dies will driving. Sometimes will restart immediately, always within 30 minutes. Engine cranks but will not start. Have noticed that the Fuel, Battery and Temp gauges stay at 0 when ignition is turned on. If this is condition engine will not fire. When gauges come up in on position then engine starts. Also have noticed " No Bus" message in odometer if ignition left on foe 10-15 seconds when in no start condition. Have been told that PCM is likely culprit and may be failing. Please help.
