My 17 month old son is passing too many watery loose motions and not passing urine past 18 hrs, please suggest

Losing too much water can cause dehydration. Child needs plenty of fluids in form of ors and other liquids commonly consumed. If he has actually not passed urine for 18 hours the condition is serious, and you need to take the child to emergency immediately.
