Default Horn goes off when just using the key.

Why does the horn start honking (security thing) when I use the key to open the door rather then using the wireless key fob to unlock the door?

Just purchased an 08 Spectra5 and had extra keys made.

When testing the new keys I found that the horn goes off when I open the car door (security thing I guess). Same issue with factory key.

Horn stops when I use the wireless entry key fob to lock the doors.

Thanks for the help. AND my neighbors thank you too.
