Default Security Indicator Light On

So yesterday as i was going to my shop to get alignment done, my Security Indicator light came on, never has happened before, so i asked the guys at the shop they said its normal,it was supposed to be on like a theft system, so i said ok, i pick up my car after its done drive for like 30 min, stop then i was going home, i turn on my ( left turn signal ) my horn starts going off with the turn signal. I've never even like heard of such thing before, but its just weird. Any help would be great. I'm new to this forum by the way.

Check your battery/alternator. Our cars do weird things when those two start going bad.

I went to AutoZone they said my battery and alternator are good. ( Also note when i turn on the left turn signal now, it doesn't honk, but the light for the security still turns on. )

Wiring is bad. Something is crossed or shorted out.

If it were my problem, I'd be pulling up the schematic and seeing how the two systems are inter-twined. Blinkers (L&R), horn, Alarm, key, all that. It goes to the BCM (Body Control Module) so my first step may include disconnecting the battery and removing the big connector under the dash and inspecting it for corrosion, loose wires, pushed out pins, anything out of the norm. It is the common thread here and it talks to the Security system so if the communication between these two is compromised, who knows what it will do. Sadly - I don't know where they stashed the security micro-computer. Anyone?

PS - the BCM is left side under the dash.
