Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, the described symptom of "...remote start just honks the horn twice..." would indicate that either the hood is open/ajar (most likely) or the brake pedal is pressed (least likely).

In some other instances, a reprogramming and/or a RESET may be necessary.

Proposed preliminary try then would be to check/re-close the hood.
