CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AFTER AC REPAIR

2008 Honda Civic • 90,000 miles

Dealership replaced compressor on ac. Took car home and 2 days later check egine light came on and car barely would move. Had car towed to dealership and ran diagnostic test and could find nothing wrong. They reset codes and car ran fine for a day. Last night I go out and start car and it would barely move. No rpms. Nothing. Restarted car and it ran fine except engine light stays on. The same thing happened this morning. Called dealership and am taking it in again. Never had a problem until they fixed ac. Engine and transmission are fine.

That's an issue with the electronic "drive by wire" throttle system. I doubt that has anything to do with an AC repair. You will need a factory scan tool to diagnose that issue.
