You might check with the body shop and see if they used a baking oven to dry the paint. It could be it overheated or melted a computer.

Check fuses!!! Fan running @ 100% w/ key on is an indication of either power loss to M.E. control unit or a coding issue. Since it started & ran before, I would start checking fuses.
