There could be several other issues leading to a DSC light;

Now, the fact that the repair was not entirely 'successful' (e.g. the light is on), could mean work was done by someone who did not know what they were doing, questionable service shop, or other issues not being disclosed etc etc. The statements do not inspire confidence on the true state of the car or the reliability & completeness of the information you are being provided.

If you still decide to consider buying it, I suggest you ask for full service history AND get a full pre-purchase inspection (PPI) completed, which *may* help identify other potential issues with the car.....still, if the car has been neglected and/or not properly serviced, you will end up spending a lot of money on repairs & parts, even if you are able to do some the repairs.
