'02 Honda S2000 Wont start

I have a 2002 Honda S2000 with about 114,000 miles on it. I hadnt drove it for about 2 weeks went start it and it was dead. Jumped it, and drove it around for about a week parked it again, and now it wont start, turn over, or anything. I tried jumping it and a push start neither worked. When I tried to jump it the first time i hooked up the cables and about 10 sec. after that the horn just started going off as if someone were just holding it down. Tried starting it with the horn going off and then unplugged the horn and tried it. Neither worked. The lights on the gauges don't come on. Absolutely nothing happens when you turn the key, or push the start button. I dont know if anyone has heard of anything like this happening before but any ideas are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Check the main fuses, I think you'll find at least one blown. Check your owners manual for their location. Your battery is weak/dead and needs replacing too.

Thanks man it was a fuse. I went ahead and bought a new battery because mine was old anyway, but the battery fuse was busted. I just soldered it back together and it worked fine.

I just replaced my batter preemptively, at 4 years/53,000 miles. Probably a little early, but oh well.

But listen...Fuses are cheap. Leave the soldering iron in the toolbox, and buy a new one. It's there for a reason.
