park brake faults on these are pretty common I'm afraid and usually due to the brake motor seizing up as its exposed under the car and usually not used enough to prevent corrosion occurring


Sometimes the motors can be recovered by a generous squirt of WD40 into the internals and cleaning up of the cable - but be prepared to have to replace the motor

the DSC 'not available' fault is probably a faulty wheel sensor
The quickest route to repair is to have the car plugged into a diagnostic machine which will read off the fault code stored in the ECU (providing the light is still on at this point) and indicate which sensor has failed or whether the fault is more serious.
