I have a new 04 and while riding in the rain the other day, the speedometer quit, the engine light and the security light both came on and I got a message that said "BUS error". When the rain stopped and everything dried out, it all returned to normal. My dealer just looked at me funny and said, "boy, thats a tough one". Can anyone shed some light on where to look for this problem? Thanks.

Yeah, real tough :(

There's a loose connection between the ECM and the gauge cluster. Trace through the wiring harness and make sure every connector is tight and every grounding point is secure.

Damn dealer morons !

If you get a good spray of water at the reset button I have had water get into the back side of the cluster and cause things like odometer problems before but they go away as soon as they dry out.

Or you could simply take the bus when it rains...
