My engine light and oil indicator light keep coming on. I had an oil change yesterday and took the car to autozone for a diagnostic. The code was not a "real" code according to the autozone staff. What could be the problem?

Is your oil level low? If your oil pressure is low as indicated by the light, you will do serious damage to your engine if you continue to drive without repairing the fault. The fault could run the gamut from a loose oil pickup, to a bda oil pump to bad bearings.
lets hope its not a bad motor from lack of oil pressure, the loss of brakes and steering is due to the engine stopped running this is normal, but hte oil light coming on with the engine running is not good, you will need to see if the engine spins and trys to start, this will tell you a little bit, if it spins then it didnt lock up, and maybe its a fuelpump or timing belt that let go, you will have to do some testing ,check for fuel pressure and spark at the plugs,
Go to autozone and they will do a teat to see what the error code is that is turning on the check engine light. Do you have enough oil in your engine.
Lond term oil leaks can cause a problem if the oil gets onto hot exhaust pipes.
Oil light that comes on while in idle means the oil pump screen is clogged or damaged, cause low oil pressure to the engine. That part is only $30. It could be a bad oil pump though, if that is the case the pump can run you $100. Either way you need to get it fixed ASAP it can cause major damage to the engine in a very short period of time!
