The horn honks repeatedly...

The horn honks repeatedly when I attach the terminals to my new battery. How can I disable the alarm or the horn?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Brand new battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2005 V6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I removed the old battery and had it tested. Declared dead by Auto Zone. Purchased a new battery which is correct for the make and model. However, as stated as soon as I attach both terminals the car starts honking and will not quit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that covers it.
