Do you have a communicating thermostat with wires attached to ABCD terminals or non communicating with wires connected to conventional C,Y,OW G and R terminals?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
terminals are conventional r,y,w,g c
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
Has this air handler been working and just failed or is this a new installation or replacing thermostat?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was working and installed in a different place i don't know what it could be
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
The 16 error code is a communications issue but implies we should be using a communicating thermostat.
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
What is the problem you are having? I would suspect you can use with a traditional stat.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it does not run, do the wires from the thermo are install on the a b c d terminals o the other strip
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
Depends on what type thermostat you have and what terminals they connect to there. Can you verify for me?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is been hooked up to the long strip
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.
Do they match terminals on thermostat?
