Well the first glaringly obvious thing is, are all the sensors reconnected? Even tho they share a common bus, I would think that if one is disconnected or damaged you will have a problem.

They are ultrasonic so painting over them shouldn't matter but you never know.

EDIT: They are affected by ice/snow so another layer of paint, who knows. Also, after this work was done, was the car driven at least 25 mph? The system will detect "temporary" faults (if they were disconnected or covered while painting and the key was turned on etc. Driving forward at this speed or higher will reset the system....
