Shift Linkage Problem

(2002 Honda Odyssey)
in Simi Valley, CA on December 24, 2010
I recently had my transmission replaced. When I got the car back, it has problems properly engaging when I adjust the shifter. When I move it to "D" the "D" light doesn't light up. I have to shift to D3 or lower and back to D to get it to light up. If it isn't lit, the transmission goes into other gears. The mechanic is telling me the cable is stretched. I think it's odd that it wasn't a problem before he replaced the transmission but now is afterward. What causes this and could it be related to the transmission replacement? Thanks!

the linkage could have gotten kinked I'd take it back and tell him he needs to fix it properly since it wasnt an issue when you dropped the car off to get fixed and that you should not have to pay for an issue cause by the transmission getting put in
