It sounds like it could be faulty wiring or loose wiring. In the cold, metal, thus wires, contract. I have dealt with this in my car and I had to test each wire to find out where the problem was. Chances are that the wires are barely touching, or it is exposed and touching something else and that is what is causing the blinkers not to work.

What might be wrong with a Mitsubishi Galant if the lights only turn on when the driver hits the breaks?

Are you talking about ALL the lights, or just the dash lights? If it is just the dash lights, you might have a bad ground for the dash electronics, or bad connection at the Dash Dimmer control. But if you are talking about headlights, too, check the gound wires on the battery... perhaps wiggle them around until the lights flash. The brake light switch should not do this. It only controls the back lights. if its only the dash lights lighting up when you hit the brake, check the brake bulbs and make sure that they are the correct bulbs. (dual filament) and that the base of the bulbs contacts arent touching

Is the dash light and the dome light on the same fuse?

No the dash lights should be with your parking lights.comment2: They are on separate circuits. Power usually goes from the "taillight fuse" to a small 5 amp dash light fuse and then to the dash dimmer wheel or knob. Then it feeds the dash lights. A blown tail light fuse makes the dash lights go out also. A blown dash fuse only affects the dash lights.

You might want to check or replace your dash dimmer light switch. I found this to cause either no dash lights or intermittent lights. Check the fuse box under the hood. The fuse you need is under the hood.

Why would a 93 Bonneville dash stop working?

If you mean the lights, it's probably just the headlight switch itself, which can be rotated to adjust the brightness of the dash lights. Turn it back and forth to see if the dash lights wake up. If you mean the dash electronics altogether, that'd be wiring.. probably a ground - get a schematic and get to it. check ur fusebox..fuse might be blown

Where is the relay located that controls the tail lights and interior lights on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage?

The relay that controls the taillights and interior lights on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage is in the driver's side fuse box. It is to the left of the steering wheel in the dash. One thing to note about this vehicle is if a brake light burns out, the car might also lose the dash lights or interior lights. Check the brake lights before replacing a fuse that might not need replacing.
