Not sure if this is what you mean, but I notice mine comes back on if I switch driving modes. For example, if I switch from sport to comfort it'll come back on automatically.

What i mean is that I have it turned off so i can get it sideways and it comes back on as soon as I dump it sideways.

Mine does this as well, I think it has something to do with the tire pressure. Mine came with the shitty all season tires so I’ve been running them below the recommenced psi. I have to hold the DSC button usually twice or three times. So I just break traction a couple times gently and keep turning it back on until it stays.. Another note, it didn’t do this when the temperature was around 15-30F but started when the temperature was constantly around -15F to 0F which is what leads me to believe it’s the tire pressure.
