Electric gremlins

Good morning all,
New to the forum, so please pardon if I step on any toes.

I have a 2007 Compass, had it since it came off the lot brand new. It's been great, with few minor problems to far. However this morning, after I started it up, I noticed that none of my speakers worked. Upon further exploration, I found that my electric mirror adjust was also inoperative. I drove it to work anyway, but found when I shut it down, that my headlights would not shut off. I let it sit and time-out, and then restarted it. I was able to turn the headlights off, but all my other problems were still there. Upon leaving the car to get tools, I went to lock it by remote, and it wouldn't lock with the key fob.

So, I disconnected the battery. I let it sit for two hours like that, re-connected the battery, and the problems persisted. I didn't try to operate the headlights this time, but when I opened the driver's side door, I got the warning tone that I had either left my lights on or keys in the ignition, and both were inaccurate. After it timed-out, that went away, but still no sound out of the speakers or mirror adjust.

Ideas? Any help is most appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
