Default HELP: Replacing new battery causes continuous horn to sound.

I have a 2005 STI. The battery died a few months ago while I was on international deployment. I bought a brand new battery today to replace the dead battery.

Once I connected the new battery up I hear a single chirp. I then open the driver side door and the horn continuously sounds until I unhook the battery.

I then disconnected the horns that are in front of the grill and connected the battery again. But the horn still goes off so it must be a horn somewhere else in the engine compartment.

I've also tried putting the key into the ignition and turning to ON thinking it might be the alarm system, but that does no good either. I also tried turning on the car but the nothing. No click or engine trying to turn over.

Any idea what could be the issue?

Thanks,
Dave

There is a security/alarm horn on the passenger strut tower if the car has the factory alarm system. If it came up in the alarm mode, rapidly cycling the ignition several times should cancel it (it's either 3 or 5 times, I forget).

Should be 3 times. Or hit the button on your key fob.
