Default electrical gremlins

Hi all,
I'm new to the list and have some problems with my 95 SSEi. It started when the moonroof failed to open and the passenger door would not lock, then the fog light would remain on and the horn would beep repeatedly at start up.
I found a few posts which mention the ground buss bars as a possible cause(corrosion on contacts) for symptoms comparable to mine. What I would like to know is the location of these busses on my 95 and how I can get to them, I do not want to force any of the plastic interior pieces as I'm sure to do some damage.
Thanks in advance for any help and direction sent my way,
Sincerely, Lew Wallace

Best Regards, Lew
