2000 740i brakes HELP

Hey guys, Changed my front and rear brakes along with the sensors, but
On the dash it still reads check brake linings and brake fuild is low. I tried resetting it and it is not working. Could this be somthing else. The brake light it self is not on. will not go away. The brake light is not on. I can't figure this out. Has any body ever had this issue.

I also replaces my brake pads and the brake linings warning message will not go away. I tried to reset by bridging pins 7 and 19 on the diagnostic socket but it does not remove the warning. I would appreciate it if somebody can offer advice to reset this warning.

That's because shorting pins 7 & 19 is the procedure for resetting the SI display ( 5 green lights/ Oil Serv & Inspection lights) and brake fluid renewal light in your part of the world.

To reset the CHECK BRAKE LININGS warning after replacing brake sensors you have to follow instructions below:

Try to reset the codes in this way:
unplugged the battery negative terminal, wait for 5 minutes and reconnected again
