If a vehicle was overfilled with oil would that cause the oil level sensor to go bad?

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

Yes, first the oil pressure gauge showed that there was basically no oil. Then the extra oil was drained off and the bad oil sensor code was reset then came back on for the same reason

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2009 chevy suburban

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not myself. I am going to wait until my next oil change to have it repaired.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of
