Like this? This indicates that the DSC is switched off. Normally on by default and you need to hold the DSC button down fro three seconds to switch it off. If these lights are on by default may indicate dirty wheel speed sensors or faulty ones, a malfunctioning steering position sensor and so forth. Start with cleaning wheel sensors. That's a cheap and easy place to start. Take a look at the attached PDF for more info on the components involved. Also press your DSC button see if the go out and then come back on again. I should also say that this happened a month or so ago when I had a faulty crank position sensor which caused my car to stall momentarilly while on the move. These lights came on and stayed on until I switched of the ignition. The lights don't mean that you can't drive the car by the way.
