Error Code on Dashboard -61 d

Hello, I've been searching for 2 days and nothing. My 1999 ML430 when I turn the key to accessory the Dash shows a picture of a Wrench followed by "-61 d " . or maybe a G not a six?? Is there a place to find out what the error code is?
Thank you, Kurt

It is not an error code.
It is telling you that you 61 days past due on service, which is most likely an oil change.
If the oil was changed recently then you can reset it via the instructions in the owners manual.

Resetting FSS is pretty simple, but not always easy. You may need to repeat the procedure a few times over.
Follow the instruction word by word, I've done this a few times.
