You need to replace any faulty pad wear sensors first!
One on the front , and one on the rear, depends which was worn down!

Then switch on the car to position II and leave for a few minutes! (Though in some reports you had to put you foot on the brake pedal also - I used to ) but try without if you have good sensors!

try not to worry about it, man. the dealer knows what she/he is doing, and will figure out why the car is throwing a code to make the light come on. then they'll figure out what to do to fix it. no reason for you to tell them how to do their job.
