Is this OBD2 scan codes? called DTCs'
yes, DTC P1362 , and google works for all DTCs, ever use google.?
if yes, then i bet its confusing, ?
P1362 TDC sensor not reading. Car goes into limp mode.
the first rule of DTCs is P1xxx P1 means manfacture specific code , its not same code as say a FORD.

if you search forums there are many bad posts, on topic.
lots of guessing. if you had the FSM, that wouldnt happen
read the FSM it tells you not only what the tests does, but
how to solve this riddle. or go to
This engine, (not stated exact) is a no dizzy engine
its called, DIS,
and runs off up to 3 sensors. on some years.
one sensor is the TDC sensors
this tells the ECU when to fire.
TDC is when the #1 piston is at top dead center.
if this sender dies, usually the car will not start.
(some cars this is and exception)
point too must ECU;' can also throw any rotational sensor
error for 1 miss out of 8 hits. this is called a flaky sensor.

in a shop we scope the sensor signals to see what is really going on, (bad ,weak, flakey, or dead,) or just loose.
or the tone wheel lose. or or or, you can see my point, it can be lots of things, both electrical or pure mechanical.
and last , the ECU never knows EVER what is broken
it only knows the TEST FAILed, never ever why.
that is the job of the humans to find that. an ASE mech.

How do i know if its the crankshaft sensor or the camshaft sensor thats bad codep1362

Well, since there are so many electronic components on your car, go ahead and replace them both and illuminate 2 possibilities. They're not terribly expensive and easy to replace.
