Why would there be no oil? Is it leaking that much on a 2013 vehicle? How often do you have the oil changed?

Bulb was burned out or wire from sender to dash broken/disconnected or bad sending unit. As to no oil leaks to warn you, do you check your oil level weekly or bi-weekly? If oil level was good, the oil pump probably died, but you should have heard a lot of knocking while driving it, long before the engine seized up.
