Brake Service reset

Goth the front pads swapped on my 2018 JCW and the dealer did not do the reset - or maybe they tried and could not get it to work. I went through the process today and it says reset unsuccessful each time I try it. Anyone run into this in the past?

I am wondering if I can use the Schwaben tool to reset it or ISTA or some other program.

Schwaben should work. I just used it to reset brake flush service warning.

Did you have the sensor replaced too? I know when I did my BMW's the sensor needed replaced no matter that to get it to reset.

Yes. The sensor is a wear part. When enough of the plastic has worn away, 2 metal contact points are exposed that sets the code for an inability to see the sensor.
