I had this happen to me as well. What I learned from someone else on this forum is that the service techs will measure and inspect the brakes and determine if they really need to be replaced yet or not (the service interval system somewhat guesstimates). So, they simply reset the interval for the brakes and over a brief period of time you'll quickly see that interval decrease as it learns and senses where your brakes really are at.

I hope that helps! Mine should be ready again soon since they reset it
