Error code P16A2
« on: December 29, 2018, 01:32:02 PM »
On my Gen 2 I recently had a message on the dash when I switch on the ignition but it went off instantly.....in fact so damn quick I couldn't read it!
There's nothing unusual showing on any dash warning lights or under "show warnings" on the menu.
So I checked for error codes and found P16A2 C0000. On the list I had saved from elsewhere on this forum all codes have a letter followed by 4 numbers and none has a letter in 4th position like the 'A' in this error code.
Anyone got any ideas what it is?

Sorry, my posted DTC list on here is incomplete and I need to update it when I can find the time. However, I do have a complete list and...

P16A2  Engine ECM detects Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) present but with signal error.

As a result, Cornering Traction Control and Roll-Over Detection are disabled. This fault won't illuminate the MIL but will take 40 no-fault cycles before it gets erased. Initial diagnostics are to check that the IMU connector is secure. After that, it's a case of carrying out a number of pinpoint tests between the ECM and IMU for short & open circuit conditions.


C0000 means that there are no Chassis ECM errors.

Top chap, thank you for such a precise explanation - and so quickly. It's help like this that makes this forum so invaluable!

So next question.....whereabouts is the IMU connector located?

Under the seat bridge at the back end of the petrol tank.
