Good Morning, another question, I see how these Service indicators are reset however, does this reset the actual red lighted word "BRAKE" in top left area in the instrament cluster?

only if this light is on as a result of the brake pads needing to be changed, which is should be if it is on in conjunction with the car on a hoist.
