A: You did not mention replacing the battery, ...

You did not mention replacing the battery, but the behavior you describe is fairly common for many vehicles after installing a new battery.

You can usually reset this by: closing all doors, locking the driver door with the key. Let it sit for a minute or two. Then unlock the driver door with the key, then start the car with the key. This should cause the alarm to stop honking, and reset the security system to normal (non-honking) behavior.
