This is a water level light temp light. sounds like you have a sending unit going bad or the water level is low. this can also be caused by running straight water and no antifreeze.

Can extreme cold cause brake light on dash to come on?

Often, the brake light on dash indicates low brake fluid. Check that first. Cold could affect the level a tiny bit so that warm it's close to low level, cold is on low level.

Oil light comes on after warm up at idle

You probably need oil. When it get's warm, the oil most likely settles more and goes below the sensor mark to light the light. Remember, there are 2 different readings on the dip stick, 1 for when the engine is hot, and one when it's cold.

I have a light coming on, its like a battery with waves in it and it only comes on when i start the car from cold then it goes off

it sounds like either a low coolant indicator or a cold engine indicator and once the engine warms up it goes off . Is it illuminated in blue ? If so the latter is most likely what it is. In the case of engine overheat the light will turn red. If you have an owners manual it will show what it is in it.
