Hi. Have you tried holding the button on the antenna down and while holding down the button, turn the ignition key to ON then release the button?

Do the lights still work like normal when using the alarm? Is it possible that the horn itself is not working?

Ok. I will opt-out and open the question back up to the other experts. I do not have much experience with this model alarm. Thanks.
