engine light and airbag light

yesterday I noticed my airbag and engine light were on, the tachometer and speedometer were not working. I also noticed the odometer was not showing the number of miles i had driven, it was showing (no bu5) I am sure its a code just dont know what it means. Can anyone explain this?
Thanks

It means there is a loss of communications to the Chrysler Collision Detection multiplex system (CCD bus).

The Chrysler Collision Detection multiplex system (CCD bus) consists of a twisted pair of wires. These wires run from one module to another. They receive and deliver coded information between the modules. The information is coded to identify the message as well as the importance of the message. When there are multiple messages trying to access the CCD bus at one time, the code determines the message that has higher priority, which is then allowed to access the bus first.

The two wires of the twisted pair that make up the CCD multiplex system are called “bus(+)” (bus plus) and “bus(-) (bus minus) respectively. Each wire has a measureable voltage level of approximately 2.5 volts. In order to maintain the 2.5 volts on each line and provide a means of transportation for the coded messages, there is a “voltage divider network”. This network consists of the Instrument Cluster module which supplies bias and the PCM which supplies termination. Bias is the part of the voltage divider network that places both bus(+) and bus(-) at 2.5 volts. Termination in the circuitry is required to complete the voltage divider network and also provides some electromagnetic protection for the bus.

NOTE: COMMUNICATION OVER THE BUS IS ESSENTIAL TO THE PROPER OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE’S ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS AND THE DRB. PROBLEMS WITH THE OPERATION OF THE BUS OR DRB MUST BE CORRECTED BEFORE PRO-CEEDING WITH DIAGNOSTIC TESTING.

BUS FAILURE MESSAGES

Short to Battery − Either or both of the bus wires are shorted to the battery potential.

Short to 5 Volts − Either or both of the bus wires are shorted to a 5-volt potential.

Short to Ground − Either or both of the bus wires are shorted to ground.

Bus (+) & Bus (-) Shorted Together − The two bus wires are shorted together.

No Termination − The bus system has not lost connection with its terminator.

Bus Bias Level Too Low − Either or both of the bus wire potentials are significantly below their normal 2.5 volts.

Bus Bias Level Too High − Either or both of the bus wire potentials are significantly above their normal 2.5 volts.

No Bus Bias − The bus system has lost connection with the VTSS module which provides bias.

Bus (+) Open − The bus (+) wire has lost connection with termination and/or bias.

Bus (-) Open − The bus (-) wire has lost connection with termination and/or bias.

Not Receiving Bus Messages Correctly − The DRB cannot communicate over the bus and does not know why.

^^.....You may have a bad connection of the dash cluster. You can easily pull the instrument panel dash cluster and clean/bend the contacts and reinstall. Push the dash and see if it affects your issues.

Mine does the same thing. I can usually hit the horn and it kicks back on. But it is a pain in the butt. Especially when it cuts the speedometer off in a speed trap town. Other than obvious problems with a potential speeding ticket, does it cause any other malfunctions that may be crucial to the jeep's operations?
