DSC malfunction

I am now getting this all the time, trying to schedule an appointment. Looks like a dynamic damper...and sometimes the dsc triangle comes on and the handbrake light on dash, but in orange. Anybody else having had these annoying issues ?

I got an error like this on Saturday afternoon. I turned off the car for about an hour and I got it again soon after I restarted it. Since then, I have not had an error light.

Along with the DSC error, I was getting a "tire pressure" error too. I wish I would have taken a picture of it so that I could remember exactly what the error messages were. Are you getting a tire pressure error too?

mine is a 6 speed, no tire pressure. just get a shock icon, and at other times a brake icon. two weeks ago it would only happen on occasion, not is it almost all the time.

I had DSC and FTM errors which required a new steering angle sensor.

I had a DSC inactive warning two weeks ago after a multi-state freeway drive. It stayed on until I got off the freeway 50 miles later. Then the car's electronics seemed to reset itself twice the next day.

And I just ran out of warranty by 900 miles.

If you get both, then I am told it is a Steering Wheel Sensor thing that needs adjustment. Happened to mine.

Okay, it happened to me again and this time I took pictures. Is this the steering wheel censor error?

I had this exact same issue minus the FTM light and it was the steering angle sensor. I had it replaced last week. Mine had a few more errors though. I had DSC malfunction, EDC malfunction, Start off assistance inactive, which I believe I had because my car is SMG.
