Need a advice from the experts,
I've replaced the battery in my key fob with the energizer 2025 while I'm looking for a vendor that will ship the lithium OEM panasonic battery to Hawaii.
All went well, I reeinitiliazed the key and everything works except when I lock the car with the key fob, door locks activate but there is no audible chirp from the horn when doors are locking and the turn signals are not flashing either.

My car used to chirp the horn and flash the blinkers before when the remote was working, I've tried to manually lock the car by turning the key via the door lock and same thing happens, door locks actuate and lock the car, but there is no chirp from the horn or the blink from blinkers.

Be advised that I've only replaced the battery and reinitialized on one dead key fob, the other dead key fob was not touched.
What would case my car to arm it's alarm?
