My car needed to get a new DSC module. Morons took six weeks to get the part from Germany. The joke is, I got so used to driving with no ABS, DSC and other nannying aids that when the issue was finally fixed, the flashing light and lack of wheel spin was annoying me!

I took the car to the dealer (when there were no error messages showing) and they kept it for a day and gave the car back saying there was a loose contact in the wiring loom. I left the dealership and within 3 minutes of leaving the lights were back on, so I turned around and went back to them. They hooked the car up to the computer and said that the DSC module needs to be replaced. Fortunately my car's still under warranty so it's going to be done free of cost. I'll keep you guys posted on the outcome.
did the dsc module fixed your problem

This happened to me as well the week before last. Have your tech check the codes and diagnose the Throttle Position Sensor...especially if the car loses power when the lights go whack.

Default Re: DSC light on + Yellow 'Brake' light

Fourteen months later and I have the same problem on my car!

This time I was sitting parked when I heard the "bing" and saw all the error messages! I've handed the car in to the dealership. Let's see what they say now. Hope they get the part quicker than they did the last time!

Steering angle sensor may be on its way out.

I currently have the same lights on, and my steering angle sensor needs to be replaced

I had those lights come on, every once in a while and as per reading this and other threads, I didn't do much about it. Generally, turning the car off and on makes the lights go off.

But lately the lights have been coming on way more frequently, especially after switching from winter to summer tires. Either set of tires is quite different than OEM spec, but close in size to front/back.

In the past hot weather made the lights come on more frequently. Anyone else have an experience where lights were temperature triggered, or diagnosed specifically to using non OEM tire sizes?

This happened to me yesterday on the highway. Noticed it because there was no throttle input. I had to coast over to the shoulder. Shut the car off and back on, and everything was back to normal.

With my Bluetooth OBD scan tool, there were no codes, so when I got home I tried to check for any stored codes with INPA, to no avail.

Freaked me out because there was literally no response from the throttle pedal. When I came to a stop, the idle was a bit higher (maybe @1100 rpms).
