Customer Question
I have a DSTC...

I have a DSTC Service Required message. The DSTC logo popped up and check engine light.... I also have the lights going out in it and the radio light went out as well.... all the light issues are connected and happened at the same time. They all sometimes flash too, including the radio light.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
