Horn & Hazards won't stop after changing the battery

After changing my battery and connecting the terminals the horn and hazards start and go on for minutes before stopping and starting again. I don't have a fob to try and when I turn the key in the ignition the car starts like normal. What else can I try?

    I have tried 'leaving the ignition on, disconnecting the negative battery terminal, then turning off the ignition and re-connecting the battery back up' but the issue remains.

My husband mistakenly put his 2005 F150 key in my 2008 Honda Odyssey and tried to start it. When he discovered his mistake, he put the right key in,but it acts like we are trying to steal it!


this is for an acura but may also work for honda

Open hood ensure battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.
