This worked for front brake reset

Trying the reset after a pad replacement put me as service required in minus 9000 miles with a permanent brake light. Attempting to reset again wouldn't put me in the service menu until I read another thread which added a step of pressing and holding BC before hitting the odometer reset, as in 2a below...
1)Insert key (door closed) 2)Press start/stop without clutch/brake 2a)when panel lights stabilize, press/hold BC until clock appears in panel 3)then press and hold the odometer reset for 3 secs etc, etc. Armed with that, I could now perform the reset repeatedly with the same -9000 mile result. Then I read in another thread where an angry owner in frustration had permanently shorted out his wear sensor to eliminate the brake light, so I took off drivers side wheel (no sensor on the passengers side) and opened the door to the plastic box holding the wear sensor plug. I pulled out the plug going to the sensor and inserted a short loop of bare 24-guage wire into the holes in the white connector (a paper clip is too thick). I then got back in the car and did the reset and it worked. I removed the jumper, put everything together, and all's well, so far.

I got a problem! I accidentally tried this out and reset my maintenance to 60k instead of 45k!! Is there a way I can change it back?
