First thing to do is check your dsc is working by trying to lose traction, in a safe place mind because it may have a fault. Then if is take it back to the place that put the cluster in.

Ok try getting into the car and push the dsc button in, turn the key but don't start the car, keep the button held in for ten second. this will reset the abs sensors. Then start the car and go for a quick drive. Turn the car off and then back on and see if the light goes off. If it does not then you have a problem with the dsc. Check the fuse for the abs, if thats working then you a bad abs sensor or worse a faulty abs control unit.

No red dot next to the mileage indicating a mismatch?

Being low on brake fluid will also throw the DSC light, so check the fluid reservoir to make sure it's not too low.

Like the other said check the brake fluid and the cluster. The red dot means the computer knows you have swapped out the cluster for another one and it does not like it. I don't know if this is the cause of your dsc light problem.
This is only a guess but I would assume the red dot is a dealer fix only, however they may ask some questions about the cluster swap out and may even demand that you get it swapped out for another one by them.
