Default Panic Horn/Lights activate when installing 12V battery

Took out 12V battery cause it was dead. Recharged it. Now when I go to hook it up, the panic horn/lights activate the second I complete the circuit.

Is this common, or do I have another problem? I'm going to pull the horn fuse to see if I can get the car started without all the neighbors descending on me. But I doubt that will make the issue go away.

Thanks for any assistance!

Actually figured it out but can't delete this, I guess. Security system goes into alarm mode in this situation. Will reset after 2 min, if you can handle the horn for that long. I took out the fuse. You have to shut the hood to get things to reset.
