ZOOMER9 is an unknown quantity at this point

I have a 98 528 and I just changed the front and rear pads and rotors along with sensors but the brake lining light is still on. The mechanic who changed the brakes checked everything and said that the light should go off by it self. Is there a way to reset this light? The sensors are brand new.

Turn the key to the run position (not start), all lights should come on and one by one go out. After I belive 10-30 seconds the brake warning light should go out. This is the procedure for my e46, it's worth trying on yours.
