After yellow triangle appears use up down toggle on turn single lever to scroll to the front brakes. Then push the BC button and it will ask if you want to reset. Push and hold the BC button and it should reset the mileage countdown.

I am not sure, but you may have to do the rear as well. Once you are finished you can reconnect the old sensors and you should be good to go.
what is this BC button?
where is this trip meter reset button?
i went to the service menu and the front brakes and rear brakes have a yellow triangle beside them. the other things listed have OK beside
