I have enabled monitoring in SDL Web 8.5 by commenting out the services I would like to monitor. This all works fine except for the ContentManagerKernel. If I enable this one I get the following error:

03-15 15:24:53,680 INFO  AbstractHTTPHealthMonitor - TMA-PO-10001 Service ContentManagerKernel - Health check failed. Status: HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error

This element is configured as follows:

<XmlHttpServiceHealthMonitor ServiceType="ContentManagerKernel" PollInterval="10m" TimeoutInterval="30s">
          <Request URL="http://localhost/webservices/CoreService2012.svc/basicHttp" SOAPAction="http://www.sdl.com/ContentManager/CoreService/2012/ICoreService/GetCurrentUser"/>
          <Authentication Scheme="NTLM" Domain="RWSTRID323" Username="MTSUser" Password="Tr1d10n2018"/>

Any ideas how to resolve this?

If indeed 8.5, try using the latest endpoint in the URL attribute of the Request node. You will most likely have to update the SOAPAction as well to reflect this change.
