Can't Get Oil Level To Register

This has to be the most idiotic thing I've ever seen in my life while working on cars. No dip stick, but an oil level sensor that only randomly works.

After changing the oil on my 2017 Cayenne, I can't get the oil level to register. Even with the car up to temperature and the oil up to temperature. I've tried it in park, in drive, when moving, when parked, engine on, engine off. This is ridiculous. Any ideas?

Sometimes I have had trouble getting oil level to register after changing oil. Reality is, the car requires you to drive for at least 5 minutes after adding oil, then sitting in park on a level surface long enough for the oil to settle for a proper measurement. At 150k miles, the sensor starting acting all crazy. Turns out the electrical connection had some corrosion inside the clip from the road salt they use here in the northeast.

You did not tell us what engine your vehicle has. If it is a 3.6L V6, forget about oil level sensor. Get a real dipstick (VW or Audi part# 03H115607B) and throw away that plug. There are many parts sites that sell dipstick for VW Touareg or Audi Q7 with exactly the same engine (3.6L V6).
