Just for starters, open the hood, turn on the garden hose and blast away all the corrosion, undo the clamps and wirebrush the connections, this will in effect have 'rebooted' your computer, but the codes will stay in the flash memory-...also look at the other end of the negative wire to insure that it is connected to chassis ground, and to the engine, solidly- Just this act, of cleaning the connections may actually put everything right....for now~

Good afternoon all .... I have the DSC fault code showing and everything points to the battery being on it's way out .... I will update this as soon as I have installed the new battery. PS I have noticed the car is just about starting and nothing more so I do think it's a battery problem.
