Car will not start but displays a DSC System Fault. It will only make a click sound but will not turn over or start. It just started a few days ago and it has a new battery. Need help!

In the engine compartment, near the passenger side firewall, there is black box with two or three brown cellunoid units inside it. About the size of 1x1x2 inches. Cost about fifteen u.S. Dollars. I had a faulty starter cellunoid. Pretty easy fix.I also started the engine by bypassing it with an alligator clip wire while I was waiting for the part. Good luck. Hit me at rtwkff@gmail. Com. Ps. That was way out of my comfort zone but it worked out ok.
