Help - Dash lights and door locks going crazy.

Hey guys, hope you can help.
This morning my car (05 GT) started acting up. I drove to work fine - but as soon as i turned the ignition off the dashboard lights started flashing, the door locks started locking and unlocking and i could hear a relay clicking in the front passenger side fuse box. it continued once the keys were out of the ignition but stopped as soon as i opened the door. I thought it might be a glitch, but no - its repeatable every time - as soon as ignition is off, it all goes crazy!

It has been raining a lot recently, so this might be it, however everything else is working perfectly. I would really appreciate any help/suggestions

Oh and the car turns over very lively and seems to be charging well - so im thinking the battery and alternator are fine.

Hope you can help.

Sounds like moisture in the SJB. SJB is the fuse/relay box you eluded to. There are TSB's on it and more than a few threads about it.

Good point. The SJB controls quite a bit of the electrical.
The plastic panel just pops off.

It could be as simple as the battery failing.
