Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
The lights and horn are going off because factory security was not disarmed when the door was opened. Pressing the unlock button on a key fob or unlocking a door with the key will disarm it.
What you'll need to do is have a key cut. With the VIN and proof of ownership a dealer or locksmith can cut you a key. Prices will vary wherever you go but my dealer charges just $5 for this.
