HELP service reset

Hi all. 2011 535i changed front brakes and rotors due to out of maintenance. I tried to reset the service light it said unsuccessful, tried several times now it says reset impossible. I know a reset must be possible somehow. What must I do? I did reuse the wear sensor witout disconnecting it. Is that a solution?

Changing the wear sensor will probably fix your problem. BMW recommends a new sensor with every brake service. I did my rears, and it reset without a hitch
