After changing the alternator the check engine light is on and stays on

(2005 Subaru Outback)
in Florissant, CO on October 17, 2012
My alternator died , i had my mechanic put a new one and also a new fuel pump.It is not a subaru dealer and he checked it with his computer and can not find anything showing being a problem. Also the car has a problem starting i have to press the accelerator pedal quickly then wait 3 sec. and then turn the key and it will start right off. My cruise control does not work anymore and the light stays on as well as the check engine light.
