I've had the battery checked and was told it was good, also had terminals cleaned & tighten. I've also had the alternator checked and was told it was good also. I'm no mechanic but I do know it's electrical, and not one mechanic I've taken it to been able to give me results

Tell your mechanic to run another ground 0 gauge wire from negative battery to body make sure it's clean contact with the body

No it comes on only when I first crank up then goes out. This is probably why the mechanics I've gone to can't pinpoint a problem.

Did anyone find an answer to this electrical problem? I'm have a similar issue on my 97' tacoma but I can actually hear the circuit opening relay clicking. When it does that, the radio cuts out, headlights flash, and the car sputters. ... any ideas

Yes I found that my battery terminals needed to be replaced. Once I did that never had any problems since. So you may want have those changed before going to a mechanic shop. Very cheap process as well.
