    Handbook states turn to ign 2 and scroll up or down, but the option to check the oil electronically doesnt appear

    Can anyone confirm if this function is on the clk

    Cheers

    Mine does not have a dipstick and the oil level is only checked via the steering wheel menu.
    I can't tell you exactly where in the menu, but if you keep playing with all the menus and buttons you will find it, and the engine has to be off to check the level.

    This video shows how to read the oil level on a 2007 CLK200k (M271 engine). https://vimeo.com/37330302

    There are some quite long threads on another forum about displaying the oil level, as ever with MB it seems to vary almost at random, e.g. I am told that W209s with M272/3 engines with dipsticks do not have the display facility.

    Turn on ign to 2 use menu buttons to get to the outside temp display then use the arrow button to select oil measuring wait until the car has measured the oil quantity

    Yep, tried that got to the outside temp and then used the arrow button up or down, only info that appeared was when the service is due, outside temp and tyre pressure monitor :confused:

    Is this something that can be activated by the star machine?
