My battery was dead and I tried to jump the vehicle. The horn began to sound and would not stop until I unhooked the jumper cable. Now nothing in the car works. It will not start. I must have engaged some type of security system. Can anyone assisst with how to reset this funtion?

Re: immobilizer in 1997 Honda Accord SE
I think you will have to eventually dig out what security system you had installed and you may need to contact them right away because they are the only ones who know the code and reset modes........sodeep

Hey,, Your alarm system is malfunctioning.. This will do exactly what your describing above, Hopefully its not Factory installed,, That way you can locate it under the dashboard, and Unjack the wires running into it.. you will be fine then until you get it replaced.
if it was factory installed contact your dealer for the location of it if its and external box or connected to the cars CPU or built in.. If its built in you will need a new CPU and remotes. If its external your in luck, Get the location of it and unjack it..
by unjack i mean there is a harness connecting to it, unplug the harness..
nothing is wrong with your battery, The immobilizer system shut the car down. PS before you try any of the above see if you can disarm it with a spare remote.
This is a tough one, if a horn itself was shorted, it wouldn't sound.Try unhooking both horns, and try to activate it from the steering wheel. If the brake light´s fuse still burns, at least you know that there is a short in the cabling leading to the horns. If the fuse doesn't trip, then one of the horns should be the culprit.
is the battery good? try unhooking the battery for ten minutes if it is and rehook and see if it does. this will reset the memory. the jump start may have been the problem hoping it was hooked correctly. if the battery tests bad replace it it could be the culprit. once you hook it up if the alarm sounds try disabling it with your remote then let us know what happens. hope this helps
You will need to replace that "stop horn" fuse since it also feeds power to the stop lamps and the gear shifter solenoid, when you step on the brake pedal. Your best bet is to unplug the horn on the vehicle(to stop it from honking) until you can get it fixed. That way, you will be able to shift out of park to get it to a shop for repairs.
For 1997 Honda Accord 2.2L MFI
4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location is located mounted on transmission. OPERATION The Vehicle Speed Sensor
(VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures
the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC
voltage signal to the PCM that determines the corresponding vehicle
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
Using a Digital Volt-Ohmmeter (DVOM), measure the resistance
(ohmmeter function) between the sensor terminals. If the resistance is
190-250 ohms, the sensor is okay.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the three terminal connector from the vehicle speed
Remove the fasteners that secure the VSS to the transaxle housing
Remove the VSS.
Install the VSS.
Install the mounting bolts.
Connect the three terminal connector to the sensor.
replace the horn relay;or the horn button on the steering wheel is grounded and energizing the horn. any maintenance involving the steering wheel can be dangerous becaus of the air bag. if you just want to stop the horn, remove the relay, probably located in the fuse box under the hood. check the manual for location, but if your state has a safety inspection it will need to be fixed before the inspection is due
