RE: 2002 Volks Jetta

If the circle is not continuous and has an arrowhead at the bottom, it has to do with the stability control system. See the link for a description and meaning. I recommend watching the short video near the bottom of the page.

Ther is a orange/yellow triangle light with an exclamation mar in the middle of the dash that came on after a low battery, what does it mean and can it be reset

James, I believe this is the indicator lamp for the Automatic Stability Control plus Traction/Dynamic Stability Control. If the lamp stays on after the car starts, the system is deactivated. This means that the system is malfunctioning or has been deactivated with the button. The button is above and to the left of the left cup holder and should turn the light off (ie: activate the system). If it doesn't, you probably have a malfunction and should consult a Service Tech. Hope this helps. Phil

Meaning of warning lights

Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.

Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.

Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.

Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.

Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

Why does the dstc light stays on the dashboard?

The DSTC system by Volvo means Dynamic Stability & Traction Control, and is the equivalent of the ESP system (means the Electronic Stability Program). If the DSTC lights on the dashboard permanently the DSTC system is faulty. You must access the DSTC Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by DSTC ECU, in other words reset the DSTC system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Dsc light is on now all the time

DSC means "Dynamic stability control" it is caused by some kind of failure in the ABS/Stability control system, it all one system. You will need to seek a dealer or well equipped outside repair shop with proper tools and training to find out the exact cause of the warning light being on, they will use a special tool to scan the system for the fault code that is stored in the computer control module whenever this warning light is turned on.

Dsc warning light on , bmw e46

Dynamic Stability Control....a derivitave of ABS / Traction control. The control unit that monitors the dynamics will most likely be sensing a difference in the measured wheel speeds. Possibly defective ABS sensor, wiring, ABS exciter ring, ABS module or steering angle sensor. Can also be triggered by wheel spin.
Have a diagnostic scan done ( cost £30 - £50 approx at good local garage) to read the fault codes first. If you get a fault code relating to "ABS module pressure sensor" the module requires replacement (common issue). Used to be a £1400 job, but repair kit now available from dealer for £180 ish and 2 hours to fit.

Service stability warning light is on

Thay means that your Stability Control System is malfunctioning. Your vehicle may be equipped with Continuously Variable Road Sensing Suspension (CVRSS) this system controls the ride height (Air Springs) and the stiffness (electronic shocks) of your suspension. Your computer data must be collected and used to help determine the cause of the failure before any repair can begin.

I have a warning light on and dont know what it means brakes

i believe this is your dynamic stability control (DSC (or ASC on some cars)) light if its a triangle with an exclemation point in it. you have either turned off the DSC (look for the button to turn it back on by pushing it) or there is a problem with the system. the light should go out when you turn the car off, then restart it, so more likely its a problem with the system.
