I had a similar issue where my horn went off in the middle of the night. I thought someone was trying steal my truck but actually i pulled out the access panel for the fuse block and felt water on top of the fuse box. A common problem is leaky windows on fords i had a small spot when i rained just right the water would get it. Not sure if this will help but you never know.

Just did some more troubleshooting. With the switch on the column unplugged, the wipers still work on their own. I'm guessing this points to the motor being the culprit???

BUMP! Does anyone have any ideas? I've been reading about a possible "pulse board" on the motor?

Sounds like its your GEM. I know my 2001 F350 the GEM controls the wipers, 4x4 and a few other things. On the 2001 the GEM is on top the fuse box. Sometimes when the windshield leaks water it drops onto the GEM then into the fuse box. Just a thought.

I had a 2001 F-150. I got a chip in the windshield which led to a leak in the weather stripping which happened to make the horn go off constantly until I unplugged it. Long story short expensive *** computer needed to be replaced. Hopefully, don't have the same luck. The horn never worked the same and needed to be replaced multiple times. I don't like telling this to people because Ford's are a lifestyle for my family and they have always treated us well. I would never drive anything else other than Ford trucks. Good luck man.

I would hope so. In Montana they have always taken care of my family. Numerous Fords we have bought so they are pretty good about stuff like that.
