Question about BMW 540i
Changed the brake pads and sensors but the warning message inside the car still says the brakes need to be changed. We can't figure out how to reset the dates for that sensor on the computer. We tried a method of putting the key in the last position before starting the car, then pushed the odometer button but that did not bring up the reset menu. Also, disconnecting the battery does not clear the message.

I suspect the control box is faulty,because it is the one that helps display faulty msgs

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.

Hi , if you turn the ignition on so that all the dash lights are on , do not start the engine and leave on for aprox 45 seconds the brake pad warning lights should go out, regards mark
