Question 2007 X3 with DSC & Brake Indicator Light issues after replacing the battery

Does anyone out there know of a reset code for these indicator light issues? My battery discharged on me when I went out of town for just (4) days (argh!) I noticed when I first jump-started it before switching out batteries that the DSC (4x4 light) and Brake indicator lights were the only ones to temporarily stay on, but would go off by themselves after I drove for a bit. Now that I've replaced the battery, they remain on and the owners manual instruction is of no help (deactivating/activating DSC/DTC). Matter of fact, the Hill Traction or DTC LED's won't illuminate at all. Can't afford another trip to BMW dealership, please HELP!

Just my 2 cents:

Are you sure your new battery is fully charged? If there is anything additional on your car that is preventing it from going into sleep mode, it is possible your new battery is already weak (not fully charged). Try to charge it and let us know if the indicator lights still remain on.
