I ended up blowing the fuse for the cigarette lighter so I contorted myself under the fuse panel with a test light and prodded both sides of all fuses and all were working. I know that can't be right so I got out the owners manual and found it was fuse #11 i needed. Pulled it and sure enough it was blown so I probed both terminals in the fuse panel and both had power. Whats goin on? I did replace it with a new fuse and now the cigarette lighter and horn work. Have no dome light(convertible) and as for the clock, I have an aftermarket stereo that's wired so I have to manually turn it on/off so I can have music with out having the key turned and having other stuff on when its not needed.

Lol, I find it easier laying down looking up vs getting down low and looking straight and up.

I have read that but am unsure of what your pointing at. If your saying I'm getting smear power from another circuit where and how.?

Yes the +12v is "sneaking" back to the other terminal of the fuse. It follows the red line.

Thanks ogre.
Phonedawgs, i do not understand how to read those diagrams. I see in the manual that the other radio source is fuse #14. What exactly am I looking for when trying to find a leech? Is there something common with this circuit leech? Also could it be something with the aftermarket deck?

Could be if the deck is the real problem (though probably a separate one) if its pulling power with the car off.

I could check that out as it's easy enough.

Finally getting a chance to look at this again. I have battery voltage on the left side of the terminal 11 and 2.8v on the right side. I think this is where i have a draw coming from as i disconnected the negative from battery and put one lead to the battery and the other to the cable. I have a .24mA draw, once i pull out fuse 11 it zeros out. I tried this with all fuses and only fuse 11 affected anything. I also unplugged the aftermarket radio and the mA only dropped a couple points to like .22mA. Any idears on where i would be getting 2.8v to the right terminal of fuse #11?

EDIT: I went back out and at fuse #14, i have nothing at the left side of the terminal and i have the same 2.8v on the right. If i plug in fuse #11, i get battery power to the right terminal of fuse #14.

I think I found my problem, seems that having the constant battery voltage and the switched together(for my stereo)was causing the battery voltage to travel down the yellow wire and supply power to those circuits.

Thanks for following through. I'm interested in this as well. Electrical issues are always crappy to diagnose.
