Yellow and Red details

diamondbimmer92, it is reasonable that a yellow light would warn about the impending service. The red light would say do it now, like a worn pad sensor.
I wonder if anyone knows how much warning would a yellow indicator give. As I described in the first post, the closest thing in the service intervals was the brake fluid change in July. I reset it and it shows June 2014 now. The yellow BRAKE indicator lights up anyway. The Check Control shows a car on the lift.
The next indicated service is 4,100 miles to the front brakes. It seems like a long warning, as many people would drive 6 months to make the 4.1K.
Perhaps resetting the fluid change is not enough? Perhaps some sensor needs to be reset? I could not find an answer to that on the forum.
