Have tried to pull any codes from the ECU since the light came back on?

There are 3 capacitors on the ECU that go bad. Sometimes there being bad is obvious, other times not so much. The electrolyte that leaks out onto the board can also cause problems.

You can't just replace the caps. You need to clean the board. And depending on how badly it was damaged, you may not be able to fix it.

did he clean the board properly? Care to post a picture of your ecu board?

Because I'll tell you right now, that ECU is still your problem.
