Ok so I have a few problems that are all probably related, I just dont know the common denominator. Occasionally, as in once a day at least, when i turn on the car, the instrument cluster, window/lock switches, HVAC do not turn on/work. Sometimes there is a short delay, then everything comes on, sometimes it doesnt come on at all and i have to turn the car on and off several times before it works. Second, my horn works about once a week. Period. right now it doesnt work, it worked a for a while, now it doesnt again. From the sound of it, I would venture to guess maybe I have a bad chassis ground?

Sound like the ignition key is not sending power to where it is supposed to go. I think the horn is a separate problem.
