P0016 = Crankshaft position-Camshaft position correlation (Bank1 Sensor A)

Model year?

It could be any number of things:
- bad Crankshaft Position Sensor
- bad Camshaft Position Sensor
- dirty or clogged CVVT oil control valve

Is the oil neglected and rarely changed? My guess it is and the oil control valve is clogged.

For the air bag light, again that could be any number of things. You will have to do to the dealer or a trained mechanic with the correct scanner to read the air bag error codes.

Hi Alfredo,
As you know there is no catch all method to correct a no start problem.
Could you provide the codes/reasons you determined those three things you mentioned might be the problem?
If you checked them , could you tell us how you checked them?
Sometimes people say they checked something and all they did was look at it and that doesn't really work.
What helps a lot is, if you tell the entire story of the last time it ran what you did when you shut down the engine and so forth. Did it give any type of warning something was not right? Any check engine light ?

Everything is important , don't skip something thinking it was not important. OK ?

The sensor is a messenger. I don't blame the messenger because it is an expensive knee jerk reaction.

Here are some possible reasons. Check the harness connections first.
Possible causes
Dirty Oil
Low engine oil level
Faulty Valve Timing Control (VTC)
Valve Timing Control (VTC) harness is open or shorted circuit.
Valve Timing Control (VTC) circuit poor electrical connector
Incorrect timing Engine mechanical problems
Damaged Engine Control Module (ECM)
