Hi, I’m scratching my head a bit over this. Done my oil change today on my 2019 E220. Reset service indicator. Took car for a quick 5 minute test drive and went to check oil level. Dash displaying message “Engine Oil Level Measuring Now”.

Left it for a few hours as I’d read to give it 30 mins. Went back to check I and got same message. So I took it for a 40 mile run taking 1 hour 25 mins so engine definitely up to temperature (88 degrees).

Tried several times while out to check oil level and getting same message. Double checked when back home and still the same.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or is it just a matter of giving it more time? I would’ve thought it would come up quite quickly like tyre pressures.

You cannot beat a dipstick, why Mercedes went down this route is beyond me.
Check if you have a dipstick tube and buy one from ebay.
 
Did you disturb the level sensor wiring whilst you were replacing the oil ?

I don’t believe so. Certainly not intentionally if I did. Didn’t unplug or disconnect anything while doing it. Just under trays off. Flat screwdriver to undo drain plug with filter and filling cap already removed to allow it to breathe.
 
To start with you should have measured what came out, and put the same quantity back in . And thinking about it you just might have to much in . message judst said check oil,,, but not ,,oil is low or high

That just ensures if the level was wrong before, it will still be wrong after.
