Take your E55AMG to a MB dealer with trained techs who know what they are doing, and can reset the computer codes.

If you can confirm the correct oil level then it's a pretty sure bet that the level sensor is bad. Every once in a blue moon the fault may be caused by a rubbed wire in the harness nearby or possibly rodent damage to the wiring but most often the sensor simply fails.
