Break wear sensor light

Ok, there are many posts about the break light and car on lift light being on. I am going crazy with this stupid light. I replaced the front and back breaks and both sensors with parts from BMW. The light is still on. I tried resetting the front and back break by using the B/C button. Nothing happened except the mileage for both now reads _ _ _ _ _. I tried leaving the key in the ignition with it on but not running for two minutes. That did not work. I have driven it 100 miles. That did not work. I wonder if I load it with explosives and detonate it if the light will go out. I doubt it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 2007 328i

There is a documented procedure somewhere on this site and it's simple. With the engine running push and hold the trip odometer reset button. After a few seconds of holding, a series of maintenance menus come up that you can scroll through and reset with the signal stalk controls.

It worked for me.

On the off chance that a wire is broken in your new brake wear sensor, the warning of worn brakes cannot be reset. A simple test would be to use the old sensor cable. Cut off the end and short the wires then plug it in. The computer will think that a new senor and hence new pads have been installed. I ran the car this way after a brake job and while waiting for a new sensor. It was a two step process for me because the sensor was on back-order.

+1 on testing the sensor. I had a new sensor fail on my rear brake change last summer.
