Why it’s not always a good idea to do a service reset

This BMW just had scheduled service performed on it. Before performing a service reset, we saw that the rear brakes had an availability of 4%, which means they were almost completely worn out. 

If any item on the service list has less than 20% availability, the service light will stay on, so in this case, it's best to inform the customer before proceeding further.

Resetting the rear brakes (obviously not recommended) would bring availability back to 100% and the service light will turn off, however, even a short drive will reduce the real availability of the brakes to 0% and then the brake light will turn on when the sensor touches the metal.
