Our 2001 9-3 started having this problem:

When the car is started, (either from sitting for a little bit or from sitting overnight) a series of things do not work:

Power windows and sunroof, a/c blower, power mirrors and now turn signals.

Playing with the A/C on-off switch and the Recirc switch, will make all of them come alive again.

The dealer says they need to replace all the switches including the turn signal column switch.

Everything will continue to work, for as long as the car is working. Turning the car off will cause everything to stop working again.

Help!!!

Please explain this one; as written, this seems to be a correct condition ???

Help!!!
Your have done part of the diagnosis.
Always begin at the battery
load test
charging test
all connections clean and bright
Ohms test the cables
Run and hide from this "dealer"..They give themselves and the car that they try to sell a bad name...
