Dash lights

I have these two dash lights that only come on when it's hot out and it makes my turn signals not turn off automatically, I can't use dtc, or cruse control.. But in the morning when it's cool or at night the lights are off and everything works perfect. Does any one know what is wrong?Click image for larger version

You need to pull the codes out of the car before anyone can really suggest anything other than grasping at straws.

The turn signals not auto turning off when completing a turn indicates a bad steering angle sensor, SAS.

Since it's only messed up in the heat does that mean it's bad or could it be a wire or something? If it's bad wouldn't it be bad all the time not just every few days?

It could be a loose solder joint.

With heat, it expands and makes intermittent or no contact. As it cools, it will contract and make contact.

It may not be your "eye" on the SAS that's bad as per that post I linked to, but this is definitely an issue with the SAS. It could be an issue with the SZL module though, which the SAS communicates with and then relays info to other modules, such as DSC.

Anywhere on the SAS board....

There are hundreds of solder connections that could be culprit.
