so I did the DIY recommended sparkplug job (thanks everyone for the instructionals/pics ) today, and thought I did all correctly; but engine light went on second time I started her up.
I don't think I cross thread plugs , because I made sure to hand tighten with plug socket & ratchet extension. One spark coil did pop back out numerous
times when trying to insert ; so I pushed it in and held in place, then hand tightened allen bolt in to put in place.
Where could I have messed up?

This question answers itself. Something is amiss with the coil that kept popping out. Remove it and recheck it so that you do not have to force it.

It reminds me of someone here, I don't remember who, that had the same
popping back from a coil, only to realize that the rubber little piece from the
spark plug socket was stuck in it.

Maybe you could take out the coil again, and have a really close look?

sometimes the boot can bind on the plugs and it bends rather than slides over the plugs - I use a bit of dielectric grease on the boot (a little on the ID where it goes over the plug) and they all go right on.

As far as the light - you need to pull the code to verify it's that coil, and not something else.
