Brake light remains on after brake job and sensor change

So I have a 2007 328xi. Today I replaced the front brake pads and also replaced the front left sensor. I made sure it was properly connected to the new pad and plugged in at the other end.

When I started the car I was expecting the brake light to be off. Unfortunately it is still light. The rear brakes are fine so I know it's not that sensor.

Is there something else I am suppose to do to reset the brake light?

Yes. You have to reset the service light manually.
