Q: DSC Fault System warning light.

asked by on

DSC Fault System is showing on the dashboard.

The DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system on your vehicle uses a number of inputs to be able to perform its duties. The most common cause of the DSC fault light showing up is a low vehicle battery or a bad connection at the battery. This system requires a certain amount of voltage, and if it does not receive it then this will occur. If the battery is fine then it is more than likely one of the sensors. The most common being the steering angle sensor, though I would not simply replace it. The system would need to be scanned for codes to see what the module is seeing. It takes a particular scan tool to be able to read the codes on this car. You should enlist the help of a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, that has the correct tool to do this.
