confused 2005 Mustang GT Electrical Problems

Greeting to everyone and I hope someone can help me.
My 05 mustang has never giving me any trouble since the day I purchased it in Nov. of 04. About four days ago I noticed the passenger window was partly down. I thought nothing of it, it was parked in the garage and thought maybe my wife left it down since she was the last to drive it. Today a coworker who was leaving work before me called and told me both of my windows were down. I live in Fl and today was no different than the last four days of heavy heavy rains we've been having. So, the inside of the car was very wet. I left work, rolling the windows up as I went to the car wash to get as much of the water out as I could. When I stopped turned the engine off and removed the key the windows were up. when I opened the door to get out both windows rolled down. I then drove home and parked in the garage. Same thing got out and both windows rolled down. I called ford and scheduled an appointment for the AM. About thirty minutes later the horns starts to blow continuously. I got it to stop with the key fob. Ten minutes later the horn starts again and the flashers are blinking now. I had to disconnect the battery to get it to stop. If anyone has any ideas on what may be the problem I would greatly appreciate your help.

Re: 2005 Mustang GT Electrical Problems

Thanks, the dealer called me and advised the problem is with one of the many junction boxes (Fuse Box) that receives the signal from the key fob. The junction box controls door locks, windows, convertible tops. Some mustangs have different features on the fobs. On mine if I push the unlock button the drivers door unlocks and the interior light turns on. when I push it a second time it unlocks the passenger door. Some mustangs when the unlock is pushed twice the windows roll down or the top folds down. But they all have the same junction box if they were build before January of 05, which mine was. That is when ford changed the box. Not because their was a problem with the box, but enough concern by ford engineers that they decided to change it. Well this is food for thought for anyone else who has this problem. I filed a claim with my insurance company do to all of the water which is causing all of the other problems. I haven't heard back from the claims office, but the dealer has all but assured me, due to the amount of water damage to some of the other electrical components the car will be totaled. I am absolutely sick over this.
