dash boards lights

I bought the car in September 2013. In 2014 during the coldest months, the dash board lights started to come on. I bought it to the dealer and they said it was a sensor, put it on the their computer to reset it or do whatever, then spoke to me about it and said it should be fine. Took the car and drove away.

Well, a couple days later the same thing, and since then every time it gets cold, extremely cold and the dash board lights come on. I have had this car since I've bought it and been told I'll call Kia head quarters to see if we can fix the steering because they think there is a short in the steering column. That was 2 years ago. Haven't heard from them since. Still had the dash board lights coming on, but now it's worse. When the steering light comes on I can't turn the steering wheel. Now I gotta sit and let the car warm up before I can do it go anywhere. This car sucks. Will never buy another Kia.
