Default Alarm won't flash lights anymore

So on my 2000 S80 with the factory alarm, when I used to arm the vehicle with the remote, it would flash all the turn signal lights once to indicate to the vehicle has been armed. Now I took my car into the body shop to get the rear quarter panel fixed. I know they disconnected the battery since the clock was cleared (although my radio station presets were all still there).

Basically I am wondering is there a setting or way to get the lights to flash again when I arm the car or does this sound more like a short in the alarm module and it is incorrectly working. Other then this everything works just fine on the car.

Tech or anyone else .... HELP!!!!!!!!!

Usually when the lights won't flash that means a door/trunk or something else isn't closed.

Make sure everything is working properly.

Like they disconnected something and didn't hook it back up.

Ok so everything is back to normal. This is kinda weird but i did have a message for low fluid for the windshield wipers. Filled it up and now the lights flash. Don't think it was a door or something because it went on for a week and the doors get opened and closed a few times a day.

Strange but can't complain since it is back to normal.
