    Newbie here. I'm located in Baja CA Sur on the East Cape.
    Recently had a run of electrical problems with my wifes DD, 2004 Tacoma DC V6.
    First the horn and emergency flashers discontinued functioning apx 2 weeks ago, CC functioning and ABS light not illuminated - Checked fuses, fuse blown. Replaced fuse, flashers worked, depress horn and fuse blows.
    Checked horn power and ground both good, applied 12V to horn from battery, horn functions.
    Pulled wheel to check spiral cable, looked good and had continuity from one end to the other of the spiral cable, opened it to inspect as well, checked all connectors and wires, no breaks or signs of corrosion...

    Now have noticed that both FT parking lamp bulbs are burnt out.

    Also the ignition switch will not power the radio, fan controls or other aux lighting while in first or second position until the engine is started.

    All advice is greatly appreciated!
    cheers,
    DV
