SOURCE: BRAKE WARNING LIGHT
I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....
Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.
If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.

the brake pad warning light is controlled by a sensor located in the front and rear brake pads, small contact with 2 wires that plud into a harness, if they are bad I think the replacement cost is around 5-10 dollars for a new one, there will only be one in the front and one in the rear, the service light is turned out by a special tool at the dealer

SOURCE: Brake Pad Sensor
i have replaced both front/ rear pads, and no matter what the dash light will not go off. I have disconnected both front/rear sensors, and light is still on , any suggestions?

That warning light is only supposed to come on when they touch metal, and when you take it away from the metal, it is supposed to shut off. You might have to pull a lead off the battery to get it to reset. Check the sensors, make sure the tips are not touching anything. Then do the battery thing.. Hope this helps.
