I have a Ford Harley davideson pickup truck.The oil dipstick has no oil on it.Can the cpm pickup that there's no oil and wont start,also security light flashes.

Hello Corey,
I am not a motor mechanic, but from my limited knowledge....
If you cannot see oil on the end of the oil dipstick then your engine *desperately* needs more oil added.
A 5 litre / 1 gallon bottle of oil costs only a handful of dollars.
An engine that siezes cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.
If your pickup truck still starts, I suggest you take it to the nearest motor mechanic, as soon as possible.

02 Volkswagon passat, My oil light cums on flashing yellow for a couple of seconds when i start my car why is this ??

Then the minimum engine oil level has been reached. You should check the engine oil level on the dipstick, and fill up with new oil until maximum level mark on the dipstick, but not above the max. oil mark!
Then everything will be all right, and oil yellow light will turn off.

My gauge ligth is on and my oil and engine ligth on? why thats happening maybe my mechanic put the wrong oil???

The "wrong oil" wouldn't do that - not immediately, anyway. More probable is they may have forgotten to fill the engine with oil when they changed it last. Have you checked the dipstick to see if the oil level is correct? If you do not see oil on the dipstick, do NOT run the engine! Have it towed to a different mechanic, and have it inspected to see if there is any permanent engine damage. You may have cause for a claim against your mechanic.

"Check Oil" warning light comes on at randum

Probably nothing whatsoever to do with you checking the dipstick. On the golf when the warning light flashes, you reset it by opening the bonnet. That is why you think that when you check the dipstick it resets, when in fact it was opening the bonnet. Check your bonnet switch

Rebuilt engine was running rough. it now wont

Check the oil, make sure it had oil in it.
If they didnt add oil then you could have siezed the engine.
Please get back with your findings on the dipstick, amount of oil, Color, feel.

Need help diagnosing problem

Sounds bad :-(
The "oil light" is an oil pressure light, which is different from what the dipstick measures. Without oil pressure to the engine's bearings they are quickly destroyed.

I fear you may have to replace the engine :-(
