As others mentioned, if your car has the original Bi-Xenons, then I would think it is either wiring or the solenoid issue. It shouldn't be difficult to check. Remove the connector (the one that...

What got my attention is that he didn't mention the infamous trilogy. He just said the DSC light.
OP, is it only the DSC light or DSC + ABS + BRAKE trilogy?
