R58 Electrical or Brake problem?

New to this forum so thanks for any help!
My 2012 R58 S (30k miles) has the lift light come on when starting then the brake light never goes off.
I am assuming it needs brake pads/sensors, all around? But have also read here and in manual that it is an electrical problem?
If I do put sensors/pads on do I need to reset so lights go off/then how?
Great to be a part of this...pushed to this because they want nearly $1000 to do brake pads here in Sweden!

The service display in the tacho will tell you if the warning if for front or rear brakes - they are monitored separately.

The brake wear sensor is triggered fairly early, so if you want to save money, you can take off the wheels and check the pad thickness by eye and continue to drive the car until they are worn down.

You may need new discs as well as pads - approximately, discs are needed every two sets of pads.

As the wear sensor has been triggered, you will need a new one of those too.

Front brake change sheets are attached, but I don't have the rear ones. It is all very easy to do yourself if you have the tools.

The service warning can be reset 'manually' (without a computer), but I have forgotten how - hopefully someone else will say.
