That lamp usually lights when the automatic transmission fluid is overheated, which would correspond with being stuck in a traffic jam.
this would happen very quickly if you had the vehicle in drive with your foot on the brake while inching forward in very hot weather.
The engine may refuse to restart until the fluid had cooled somewhat.
It also indicates that it is time to drain and refill the auto as the fluid has been subjected to excess heat which degrades the fluid and can increase wear rapidly.
did the vehicle restart when the fluid had cooled?

SOURCE: Oil Light comes on VW passat

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

SOURCE: EPS and Check engine light on 2004 Volkswagen Passat Turbo

I note that you posted your question 14 Feb 09, so happy belated Valentine's Day! Anyway, I own a 2004 VW Passat 1.8 and am currently facing the same problem (EPC light and check engine light on) and subsequently, I coded it out, which was P0322. I took my other vehicle (more reliable) into the VW dealership in Olympia Washington. I was going to replace the EPC sensor, which typically handles what is sent to the car's brain, telling it how much gas it needs to run. However, the technicians at the dealership told me to code it out before investing any money without knowing exactly what should be replaced.

I took the code and determined the "crank sensor" was defective. If you call around, you should be quoted anywhere between $48 and $90 respectfully. If your VW was lurching like it was missing for a split second at a usual speed, or died at stops, then I would say you were experiencing the same problem I was having. Hopefully, this will fix your problem? The part is pretty inexpensive, but I think what VW charges to replace the sensor, is highway robbery. Anyone in your family mechanically inclined? Good luck!

SOURCE: Code error P1361 Honda CIvic LX 2002

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

SOURCE: engine oil light is showing on the dash board after switching on

Most important thing you need to do is to establish the actual oil pressure. put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read real oil pressure. If pressure is low (min is 15psi, I prefer to see at least 20 at idle) there is an internal problem...bearings etc. If pressure is good, sending unit has failed...replace it. I would not drive it 'till the oil pressure is verified as being safe. You might get lucky and someone just forgot to plug in the sending unit, but it must be checked!!!
good luck

If the car is having trouble maintaining idle (the tach dips and car dies) the common causes are the idle control valve and camshaft position sensors. The cam sensors failing will be indicated by a check engine light.

The ICV can removed and cleaned with good results (I think there is a write up on bimmerfest) or purchased new for about $100.

While you are in there check the intake boot that is Y shaped for cracks, it's prone to fail and will mess up your idle too.

I suppose its possible the alternator stopped charging the battery enough at the low engine speed but then worked on the way home.
The alternator will charge 12 - 13 volts at idle, but you could have enough accessories and the cooling fan running to use more voltage or amps than it is producing. Stopping at a traffic light for a couple of minutes does not hurt anything since the battery is usually fully charged. But idling for an hour or more with everything on could run the battery down.
You might want to have the computer checked for codes even tho the check engine light may not have been on. Also have the alternator and battery tested again to see if something happened while in heavy traffic.

Take a battery that has a good charge on it or 12 volts put it in and start it then take a multimeter and put the red lead on to the power lead on the back of the alternator and ground the black lead.It should read between 13-14.5 volts anything more or less replace alternator.If alternator checks out ok check battery voltage after charging it.Must have at least 12-12.6 volts anything less replace battery.

Your ECU is going bad and needs to either be replaced or repaired. That 'no check engine light for 20-30 minutes' is a common problem that tells it's an ECU problem.The ECU won't power the fuel pump and other relays until the check engine light illuminates on the dash.

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.
