Bus honks when I remove the key

I have a 96 International 3600 Thomas and my wife came out to start the bus since we haven’t turned it on in a month and now when she removes the key the bus beeps for a few seconds then it starts honking and wont stop. I checked all the switches and nothing appears to be switched on. I read some articles about a child reminder but I don’t see a button to reset. ANy help? I’m sitting in my bus right now stumped on what to do.

disconnect battery to stop honking in meantime if youd like. assuming that doesnt mess anything else up (not as familiar with buses as cars)

There are several different systems - but usually the rest button is at the back of the bus - behind the last seat - or near the emergency rear door.

its a safety feature to make the bus driver walk to the back of the bus to confirm there are no children left on the bus.
