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.

$300 total is fair for starter replacement. Depending on what the DTC code... guy is most likely NOT guilty what code is it?. Lets start Posting the NAMES! of the repair facilities... it might help local people to AVOID OR TO VISIT!
