plz check the following and update me
1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)

SOURCE: Horn won't honk
You have a broken rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a ribbon that looks like a clock spring, it is called the air bag clock spring contact, anyway replace it and your problem will be fixed, be careful to disarm the airbag before you pull the steering wheel, disconnect the battery for 1 hour and then disconnect the airbag control module before starting any repair.

Changing out the old battery, you may somehow shorted something out in the car. You can check this by seeing if you have any power going to the lights on the car and what ever else that uses the power when you turn on the key. Newer cars like yours usually cant short out, but if the lights and other stuff dont work when your check them, disconnect the battery and look for the fuse panel. Check ALL your fuses and make sure none of them have been blown. You can check that by seeing if the filament in them looks to be burnt or broken as if it popped.
You can also check and make sure that the negative battery terminal is on tight enough. Sometimes a bad ground can mess everything up. As your doing this, before your reconnect your battery, go under the hood of your car and disconnect the horn. This will allow you to work without the horn blaring. To disconnect the horn, its just a wire with an end that simply slides over a metal tab, just give it a pull and it should come right off. You may have two horns so check both sides of the radiator. Hope this helps!

This looks like you have a alarm problem,take the keys out and replace battery,if it starts honking press alarm off.If this don't work you have to find a Nissan workshop to calibrate the alarm and computer.It might be so bad that the car wont start at all after a battery change and that,s because the car was powerless for a short while and the computer thinks its been stolen and hotwired.God luck
