When I got in my 2005 E500 (with airmatic), I got 2 messages. The first one said "schedule F service due in 123 miles" (I have been getting this message for quite some time) and then a new one popped up. It says "visit workshop" and it shows the outline of a car with an arrow inside it pointing up.

Any idea what this is for? Is it the "raising" feature of the airmatic suspension? I tried raising the car and it would not rise. Is it something else? Do I need to take the car in ASAP? Will this be a costly repair?

Any help would be appreciated.

The messages are not related. the first indicates that you are due for your next service in 123 miles, the second indicates a problem with your Airmatic suspension. The Airmatic fault should be looked at by a dealer as soon as you can. he then can diagnose the problem and repair it. This should be repaired regardless of the cost as the car may become not drivable. It could be as simple as a leak or as costly as replacement of the compressor or electronics module. In any case it should be repaired.

More times than not it is a malfunctioning acceleration sensor to front right, left, or rear right identifiable by stored fault code. Part 0045423518 (parts.com $53.48) replaces original 0025426918 for all locations if replaced confirm current part is installed.

error code Visit Workshop with arrows pointing up came on. Today the compressor pump continued to run for at least an hour when the car was turned off. I took it to a garage and they did not have time to work on it, but just disconnected it.
Any idea cost high to low to fix this?

You have several previous threads talking about the cost to fix Airmatic issues. The least expensive one would be the compressor wiring harness but you say the pump was running and then it is more likely a failed strut. You must have observed one or more corners being low?

@ Diesel Benz -

the car never was lower on either corner. In fact, I noticed when I would hit the comfort switch the car would raise and lower. The only thing that happened was the motor to the pump continued to run without shutting off.

I removed the airmatic pump and the casing is cracked. Maybe due to heat? Anyway, when I install it, should I have the car on jack stands or will the car be able to lift itself back up? Thanks. Also, is it necessary to have the car taken to the shop to have it calibrated?

If the car was converted with the Arnott Springs and not using Airmatic then Arnott should be contacted. There little module is suppose to negate any of the Airmatic communications that would display an error on the dash.
