Sounds like you have a leak. Check the rear trunk and pillars for signs of water entry. It is likely you have water in the central locking control unit or harness. Rain that hard will leak even if your car has never leaked before.

central locking pump causes that the rain comes from the sunroof drain, the hose gets clogged and pops out of the housing, if your locks dont work on key fob anymore, the lockin pump is gone,
