Question: Did my shop make a mistake

I brought my 2001 Jeep Cherokee to a shop to have my heater core replaced I had to return right away as my resitor blew. Then when I left a evap flow fault occurred. I took it back to the shop they did a smoke test in front of me. There are no leaks They need to now diagnose it. Could they have done something when they took the dash out to cause the evap system to have issues???
