I had the same issue recently. DSC failure was the code in my display. Brought it to my mechanic, he said it was the ABS sensor and replaced that. Unfortunately the traction light stayed on and he could not get that to go off as he could not reprogram the ABS sensor. I had to bring it to the dealership to get it reprogrammed. It was pretty expensive as they also said the steering sensor needed to be replaced.

Perform a hard re-set of the ECU (disconnect battery negative cable, touch it to positive terminal for 30 seconds whilst positive cable remains attached to battery.

Before doing that though, make sure you have the unlock codes for your stereo.

Find a mechanic that has the proper diagnostic equipment that can handle ABS/DSC functions and resets but +2 to the advice above for a free "hard reset".

Before you start tearing the car apart looking for a fault, is:

1. the TRAC / DSC (depending on your vehicle spec) light flashing twice per second

OR

2. TRACTION CONTROL FAULT or DSC NOT AVAILABLE displayed constantly

If (1), this is informing you that Traction Control / DSC is operating. If (2), then you have a fault.

To avoid wheel spin
And when abs switch on to stop wheels from locking
My light is blinking even when the car is still; at a hault.
Once in my life i saw it work properly. It was off. The dsc button made it on as stable when i switched off the dsc. when i switched it on it disappeared and blinked when i pressed full paddle on a turn and the tyres spinned a lil and then went off.
Now i have spent too much to eradicate.
Changed the complete left hub to clear the front left abs speed sensor ring error. The comp told that the left front speed sensor for abs isnt working/broken. I replaced the whole hub.
I have even changed the abs module.
Freaking hell dude. Since the car has this traction error my brakes are even working with abs and they have that weird pulsating affect and the sound for it.
I need a soln.
There is no dsc message in the message center
I have no dealer here too.
The universal obd scanners are used.

harris2742 - we can only give you as much guidance as possible based on the symptoms - the sure fire way to figure out your issue(s) is to obtain an OBD scanner capable of reading the abs/dsc code(s) - search the forum - many of these enhanced scanners can be purchased on Ebay or elsewhere - good luck
