I have a 96 Taurus that had that problem. Inside the front left fender, under the shroud, there is a wiring harness. At the center of these wires are the 2 main wires going to the fuse panel. These wires are larger than the others in the harness. One of these two wires has a short. Good luck finding it. Look for a place on these 2 wires that there is some discoloration on the insulation, or where the wire seems stretched, or there is a hole from a circuit tester.

Answer 1 - Fuse Panel FireThe cause is/was a "SHORT CIRCUIT" condition on the "incoming" [from the battery] side of the fuse panel.

You need to check the fuse in the fuse panel or the horn relay in the power distribution box under the hood

Malfunctioning alternator, malfunctionining fuse panel, short in the main power wires, ECM failure... take your pick.

Door locks are protected by circuit breakers. A surge of power to a fuse would cause it to blow. They are located in the fuse panel.

More than likely has 2 fuses. One in the fuse panel and another inline fuse somewhere between the fuse panel and the radio on the red power wire.
