1999 Dodge Durango V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 99 dodge durango with 56,000 miles on it. I recently had a error code "NO BUS", none of the gauges work. I took it in and replaced the BCM computer. 6 months later same error code and gauges not working. Is it the instrument cluster?
Do you

I would check fuses as a 1st step
and do check for codes
very uncommon for it to go bad in 6 month
check with the dealer that did the job for any warranties

Was the 6 month break over the Winter? Mine did the same thing. It said "no bus" a few times, and then not one problem over the Winter. Once it got warm out it started again. If so, I would say replace the computer. Try my temp fix below. If that makes it so you don't have the problem, then it is your computer. I got mine from AutoZone for around $276 plus a $65 core fee that you get back when you return the old part. The dealership wanted just under $600 for the same part, plus $85 to install it. I was able to install it in around 3 minutes, including unhooking the battery, and I am not a mechanic. It is 3 bolts and 3 electrical connections. If you can't afford the AutoZone price right now try packing ice around the computer to keep it cool. I would buy a bag of ice from a gas station, pour out about 1/3 to 1/2 half of it around the computer, reseal the bag, and then pack the bag around the computer. This worked WONDERS for me until I could buy the new computer. If you need to know where your computer is e-mail me @ DanielDriggs@aol. Com. Good luck.
