Brand: Security system not audible after visit to shop

Q: I have a 2000 Lexus 300 ES which I recently put in the shop to have the timing belt and water pump replaced. The car runs great, but the horn on my security system is no longer audible when I lock and unlock the car. It locks and unlocks properly, but there is just no beeping sound. Before I put the car in the shop it worked just fine. My mechanic checked the relay, but can’t figure it out. I miss the convenience of hearing the car lock and unlock, and hope you can help me out.

*sigh* Have your tranny fluid changed, and never put anything but trans fluid into an automatic transmission.

If indeed there are "sludge and varnish deposits that, if loosened or dissolved by the fresh ATF, could conceivably restrict hydraulic passages or components and cause potential problems or failure" what do you think that Seafoam, which is nothing but a solvent, will do? I would never take a chance on ruining an asymptomatic transmission like that.
