OBC unable to measure engine oil.

I had an oil change a couple of weeks ago. Since the oil change, I never bothered to check the engine oil level, until today. But when I tried to see where my engine oil level is at I got this weird message saying something along the lines of: engine oil level is not available because the service interval changed, please have the system checked during the next oil change. HUH? Anyone experience something similar?

Sensor malfunction was failry common in early production years. It will not read if you are moving or the car has not reached operating temps. I assume neither of those apply. Take it in and have it checked if you are under warranty.
