Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2000 Jeep grand cherokee. low mileage (90000 miles) ...did diagnostics.at
mechanic..battery failure. replaced the battery. then they called me again and said the
starter was not working. It was fine when I took the car to the mechanic. Can they have
caused the starter to fail? Or is it just a coincedence?

It could have failed. I mean it is a 14 year old vehicle. Or they could just be telling you that to get more money out of you. It's not like I haven't seen them pull that stunt more than once.
