Question about Nissan Terrano
I put the engine off for 30 minutes while in a traffic jam, then it refuse to to restart, and iam seeing that dust board light appearing, i want to know more about what it mean.
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.

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!

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.

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!!!

SOURCE: The engine shut down while on stop and go traffic. Tried to restart but the throttle was weak and shut down again. After shutting everything down for 5 minutes, restarted the engine. The throttle w
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.
