Check engine light on after replacing starter

Asked by Jun 29, 2016 at 08:55 AM about the 2010 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My mechanic just replaced my starter and now the check engine light is on.  Prior to picking up my car, he asked me if the light was on when I brought it in.  I told him absolutely NOT   He, of course, ran the code and said it was some part that I can't remember..  I say baloney...  What could he have done or not done to make the light come on?  I certainly paid him way too much just to replace the starter.
