Im getting the S016 code, which says the right front ground is open/missing, it hasnt effected my driving but i get the SRC message now. Where do i look to find the ground wires from the sensors so i can check it, it happened after i touched my wrench from battery to motor mount on accident. Im not pulling any other codes.
Go into diagnostics mode and when it says "PCM?" press the fan down button untill you reach "RSS?" Then press the fan up button once to enter that menu and the fan down button again until you reach "RSS CLEAR CODES?" Press the fan up button once to clear the codes.
Now you want to double check to see if that problem is and existing one or just a computer fart from the battery short. You can do one of two things to find this out:
Go for a test drive.
Or, after you cleared the code press the fan down button until you reach "RSS OUTPUTS?" Press the fan up button to enter that submenu. Then press the fan down button until you reach "SO08" Leave it alone for at least 20 seconds (it will cycle all the dampering valves, and I think the ELC compressor will alternate on and off as well). After that press the "OFF" button 3 times and it will start cyling through the codes again.
If S016 is still there it means that the wires going to your passenger side strut are grounded on something, or your strut is bad.
