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.

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.
