I have a 2001 xtype and the same lights came on my dash, i had it plugged up to diagnostic and it was down to a split reluctor ring on the rear wheel, this set off the abs light which in turn sets off the management light. Will cost £200, but looks quite easy to repair by self

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 out to find out the exact cause of the warning
The red light is for warning the amber is for caution so your caution light is on thats the amber the amber is reserved for local market like brake pads,oil change,or abs that affects steering stability, The information is exclusive only your driver handbook will define it
Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.
one of your wheel sensors are bad. if you go to napa they will let you use a code reader for free and that will tell you which wheel it is and you can replace that sensor. they are kinda expensive @ around 100 bucks a piece.
Had a similar problem with left abs. Garage eventually found that the notched ring on the CVJ was broken giving a false ABS reading (and warning light on). Replaced the CVJ (ring cannot be replaced independantly).
Hope this helps.
