Replaced my brakes but my warning light is still on... please help

Hey friends, I replaced all my brakes but my warning light is still on and the message in i drive is still on the screen that they are at their limit.

I have the Bav tech tool and I went through and read codes and deleted them. I also went to the service part and they say 100%

Do I still need to do something to reset the lights, it sure seems like it?

Thanks

Did you replace the brake sensors as well?

No I didnt, you don't have to replace the sensors every time, right?

it is a dual stage sensor. two filaments wear thru.

if neither are bad you could reuse. if you had the light then it triggered. in your case it seems you will need to replace the sensor.

did you inspect it? any sign of wear?

If the light comes on in your car, you need to replace it.
