Question: Code 16 on a Honda Pilot

I want to know what a code 16 is on a Honda Pilot. It was recently driven with low oil in it and the engine shut off. There was no smoke coming from the engine and the temperature gauge didn't go past the usual mark. We think an oil pressure sensor in the vehicle shut the engine off. The car tries to start over but the engine wont fully engage we think the sensor triggered the cpu and isn't allowing the engine to turn on.

The oil pressure switch can not interrupt engine operation.

Sounds like you lost oil pressure and did mechanical damage to the engine. Double check the engine computer first to see if there are any stored fault codes.
