My check engine light keeps coming on and every time I take it to the mechanic they tell me it's because of the thermostat. I have a cold air intake in my 2010 Dodge Challenger, would that be the problem.

I just checked it again. I had the code but I forgot. But the reader did say that the thermostat temperature was too cold. Could that be because of my cold air intake or my aftermarket exhaust?
