M4 Brake Warning on dash?

When I try to reset the front brake pads. I get a reset unsuccessful message. Any ideas?

Did you replace the pads because you got a front brake pad sensor light? If so, those sensors need to be replaced. If you replaced it, try unplugging and replugging it back in and then resetting. If that still doesn't work and you are sure there is no issue with that sensor, then you need to get a scanner like the NT510 and clear it. But I've never had an issue with resetting after changing the sensor.

I had the same experience on my wife's wagon. If the sensor is worn at all, you need to replace the sensor to reset the timer.
