When cel comes on it will set code(s), can see if any code is related to existing code(s). I have not heard of this but heck, I am wrong sometimes and can learn new tricks.

No, a starter cannot cause a check engine light. And a starter doesn't do much when the car is runnig, which is when you would look for your check engine to be active.
