It must be something your mechanic has touched. Go through any documented guides available on the process for what he was supposed to have done, and look for what he could have done incorrectly or what he will have needed to unplug. Given that you've got a selection of issues in unrelated systems since you've got it back, he could have neglected to reconnect an earth wire somewhere, or a wire to a plug has come out of its connector. Do you have a wiring diagram so you can see if there's a common earth for the fan, temp sender, stereo etc.? The wiring for the coils route underneath the plenum chamber so he could have chafed or trapped one maybe when stripping down to do the cambelt, or wire in the plug/connector at that coil is loose or broken. Check the connector to that cylinder's injector also. You'll have to check continuity all over the place with a multimeter. But if this guy isn't willing to rectify the problems he's caused then threaten him with trading standards or that you'll rubbish him on the forums. It's not going to have coincidentally broken the ecu, he's ballsed something up.
