Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
I'm assuming you have only factory security since you mentioned disconnecting the horn.
Factory security should also disarm when unlocking a door manually with the key. There will be disarm switches that send a signal when the doors are unlocked manually and it will disarm security provided everything is working correctly.
If it won't disarm from the driver's door then also try the passenger door, it's possible for the switches to fail.
