How to Clear DSC Light?

My allignment is a little off, so I'm planning to take the steering column unit off today to clean it and have the allignment done tomorrow. The guys at the shop said they can't clear the DSC malfunction code is there a tool or way that I can clear the error??

I just remembered it goes away once you drive a bit. I believe it may run through some checks and auto correct itself?

Mine came on for a bit after my dyno, but after 1 min of driving went away

Right after I got the alignment done it came back on. I had to drive to Markham from Mississauga for a meeting which the light stayed on. After the meeting when I turned the car back on the DCS light never came back on and it has been off since.

I think maybe the laser unit in the steering column reads at what angle the wheel it as when driving and takes an average over the course of the drive. Before the alignment my wheel was off pretty badly. After the alignment my wheel is dead straight so I guess its fixed (Y)
