On the earlier model s550's the wire harness running through the trunk to the back up camera was run with out enough slack to properly allow the trunk lid to open.
The end result was that after multiple open/close cycles of the trunk lid the wires inside the harness would tear apart.

Relevant videos below.

The park aid message alone just means you need to enable the system according to the manual.

"If your car is equipped with the Park Aid System, you may see a warning reading “Check park aid” displayed in the message center. If you do, it means that the Park Aid system has been disabled. You’ll need to enable the system to clear the message.

This message will only display if you put the car in Reverse and the Park Aid system is not activated "

From what you describe it is enabled but fails to initialize when activated, this indicates a loose or damaged connector on one of the sensors.
This issue will require examination of the connections on the inside of the bumper, if you are still under bumper to bumper warranty it will be covered otherwise an independent shop should be able to get it fixed fairly cheap, the sensors themselves are pretty robust so a connector issue is likely.
