Driving home from North Carolina to New York, I-95, legal speed limit of 65mph, truck shut off displaying "no bus" in odometer screen. Was able to pull over safely, thank god, and turned ignition off for a couple of seconds and than restarted truck. Thankfully it started up and I was able to proceed on my way. This happened a few times more while on my trip to New York. Driving locally didn't encounter any other problems. Have scanner at home as I'm a auto repairman at a novice level, and was surprised that not one code was stored in the computer. None of the forums seem to be able to give me any insight as to what caused this problem as none of the recommended checks produced any bad tests. This is a serious problem that should be recalled and fix by the Chrysler Corp before someone gets killed.

I was hearing noises coming from the rear of my vehicle. Took it to a local dealer that told us the entire rear end needed to be rebuilt. Apparently there is a defect in the axles that make the pinioned, differentials and axles to go bad. Paid $3500 for the repairs to turn around and have the same thing happen just over a year later.
