Cool Resetting Brake indicator

I have a problem with brake pad service indicator.
It show -9000
I did everything I already found on the net for reseting the service interval but when I hit the reset for the second time it shows ----- then it goes back to -9000 miles.
HELP PLEASE!

Maybe it's worth a try to scan the computer for codes and use the scanner to reset it.

Well, many auto parts stores will do a quick free scan and reset.
