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.

A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.

If parking lights and dash lights are not working and fuse blows out, there might be a problem with battery corrosion. Check the components specific to the circuits of the affected lights. It might be loose.
