Sounds like the car started to misfire. You should have the car scanned for fault codes. An ignition coil or ignition wire set failure would cause this.

My 2006 vw jetta tdi lost power and died wont restart am told need code to restart but dont have right code

You will have to have the fault codes read by a code reading machine . That will tell you why the engine stopped. I am suggesting that you check to see if the cam shaft is turning when you try to start it as the timing belt may be broken. Repair/replace items listed by the codes -reset the CPU with the code reader

Vapor locks

It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.

I was driving along a snowy road in minus temperatures and then suddenly on the dashboard a warning red light came on like an injector and the engine died completely straight away and would not restart.

if the check engine light came on. have it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner any auto parts store will scan for free. but this may be a bad crank sensor, that is how they act when bad. it controls the timing on todays vehicles. if crank sensor is bad it will die while driving, and may not start back up.

1999 VW Jetta- all dash lights (ABS, Brake, Airbag, Check Engine) went on and then the car died. It restarted when I had a jump but only made it 1 mile before dying again. Is it the alternator?

Sure is, the regulator in the alternator went out. You can test this by starting the car and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. If the car dies, you have a bad alternator.

2002 Buick Rendezvous after about 5 miles of driving it starts cutting out and acts like it is not running on all cylinders. It lunges real bad and dies when it gets down to an idol and then has trouble...

Try replacing the fuel filter. If that's not it you might take your coil pack and get it tested at a parts store like Advanced Auto. Hope this helps.
