4 fault codes after getting car back

Recommended Posts

Very unhappy with my recent visits(s) to independent Porsche tech; received car back after they installed a new fuel sending unit seeing there was a 0442 code; the next day after receiving car back check engine light came on with following codes:





Any suggestion what it could be; maybe something unplugged? I don't want to take it back there just for them to start replacing everything; $3K last week was enough.

Any help or input would be appreciated
