Auto electrical

I have a Toyota with a blowing fuse. I checked with a service in Texas and they said it is a problem that requires a lot of time because the circuit has many small accessories on it. My first thought is a good auto electrician or a general service here that would have seen the problem before. Do you have any recommendations?

This is where a Toyota forum online can be your friend. Search a few forums specific to your year, make and model. You might find it’s a common issue. 
After balking at the dealership price of $400 USD to change a Prius headlight, I searched online, found a trick ( from a Toyota dealership mechanic ) and did my own for the cost of the bulb and 10 minutes.

They don't call them "stealerships" for nothing.

Another great source for diy fixes is youtube.  

check out "Sotty Kilmer" for a laugh

I highly recommend Carlos escalera. I would say probably the best mechanic shop that I have ever dealt with anywhere period.

he diagnosed my fuse problem which I had been warned in the states would take a couple of days for a very reasonable price. He fixed another problem the shops in the States were unable to fix for next to nothing. He got in a specialist to make a key for me without having to make a separate trip.he suggested couple of places to take my car to have things done that he doesn't do like a wheel alignment.

I'm sure there's other shops that are very good but I would not hesitate to go back and deal with him and have an enjoyable experience with a good mechanic who speaks good English.
