Is there a fuse for the starter on this model?
During an attempt to start a very cold engine the door alarm horn honked for some reason and now the starter does nothing. Dash lights are bright as is the dome lights.

Try disconnecting the battery for a while, then re-connect (fully charged or re-charged as necessary). Sounds like very low voltage may have triggered the immobilizer. And no, there is no fuse for the starter motor itself.

Battery charge (and power reset) not a bad idea.
