A class error message
I recently bought a A190, 2000 secondhand and I have no owner manual. In the screen that usually shows the miles done and temperature, a oil can light and the word "Hi" appeared. Does anyone now what this means? The normal oil light is at the top and red, so I dont think its the oil though. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks! ... and do you know where I can get a manual? (then I wouldnt have to ask stupid questions )

I assume "Hi" does not mean Engine is saying hello to you but instead the car is telling oil level is high but I do not have a copy of the user manual for this car and I may be wrong.

First ensure that you do have more oil than required in your engine. Any mechanic can check it; and any mechanic can drain it for you.

Viel Im new here but have had a similar problem. this post is a few months old and you must have fixed it by now but in case anyone else reads heres my bit.
When the ignition is turned on to position 2 and all the lights come on wait for a few seconds and an error picture comes on of an oil can press the 000 button twice with in a second and it tells you the oil level. 1 1.5 2 liters oil needed or HI saying you have too much oil which can cause an alarm to sound when at running temperature. having too much oil is bad for the car and one of the usual problems occurring is cat converter problems. loosen the sump plug and drain some oil out but if you dont want to change the seal ring on the plug use a windscreen wiper tube and insert into the dip stick tube and syphon some oil out. you will need to get the error message turned off by a mechanic afterwards. by memory i was told the difference from low and full on the dip stick is 1 litre.
