Brake Fluid Indicator

I have a 2008 335xi with IDrive. I changed the brake fluid - but iDrive is pestering me. How do I reset the indicator?

The same way you reset the oil indicator after an oil change.

I just resurrected this for my 60k service due so enjoy!

Place a key in the ignition switch and press the start button. (foot off the brake)

Wait until all check lights and beeping goes out.

Put your foot on the brake pedal and hold odometer reset until yellow triangle comes up.

As soon as that happens; release it (odometer reset button) and use scroll on left side of steering wheel to find an icon that you want to reset service light for.

Press the top button (BC button) on left control handle and reset "light" will come on.

Press again and hold it for few seconds.

That should do it.

You can keep scrolling until you reset all that needs to be done.

Once you are done take a keyfob out and you are ready to go.

I did everything in order - and got to the sub-menu - but it would not reset. Is it possibly because it is scheduled for 1/2014?
