R56 Service / Brake lights etc Reset Proceedure

OK Folks the info you have all been waiting for - sorry it took so long to compile - but have managed to get round all those R56 service light resets. The main one people are asking for is the Brake indicator reset after changing pads and fitting a new sensor, but the procedure is the same for all service indicator resets.
Please do not reset any of your service lights if you have TLC cover for this work.
I take no responsibility for how this info may be used!

Anyway......

To enter the service Menu:

Insert Key
Do not press clutch / brake
Press Start button
Wait until the Car / revelant Service symbol disappears on the Rev counter display
Immediately after the symbol goes out - Press and hold Both buttons on the Rev Counter
Continue to hold - the system Will run a dash light check
Continue to hold
Display will then show VIN / Menu, - continue to hold through this until the time Reappears on the display.
Now release Only the Right hand Button (trip reset) for about a second, and then press and hold again (whilst still holding the LH button)
After another second or 2 the display will show the Front Brake Symbol You Are Now in the Service Menu
Use the BC Button (on indicator stalk) to scroll through to the relevant symbol - eg Rear Brakes

To Reset the warning indicator light - Press & Hold the BC Button at the revelant symbol until RESET appears - then press and hold again until the process is complete.

Turn Off and On the Ignition again - Warning should now have gone!

Good Luck !

Mods can you please add a copy of this Info to the FAQ & DIY Section, and can you also Sticky this?

BIG NOTE!!! Close your door! I spent over 30 minutes sitting in 90 degree heat and didn't think t close the door. Goes pretty quick after that!

Here is the MUCH easier version of this

Insert Keyfob
Press brake
Start car
Press BC button until you get to set/info
Press and HOLD until you see the screen change and the windshield wiper symbol comes up
Press the right Odomoeter reset button on the right side of the tach for about 6 seconds.
When you see the RED brake light symbol, release
Press and hold the BC button until you see RESET
Release and press again
DONE, symbol will turn from red to orange
