If your timing belt symbol is on then its mileage controlled and trying to tell you something. Get the belt changed and the garage will reset the light. If the belt has just been changed then get the light reset.
There is no automatic time to change the belt..it depends on the type driving..I.E stop start jack rabbit city driving verses road miles etc. it can be a costly to replace .Most cars have inspection covers to take a look at the Belt wear and Condition of the drive teeth of the belt...Take your vehicle to a respectable garage and get them inspected..will cost but only a fraction of replacement..if needed the make your decision..up to your..good luck..
It is suggested that a dealership or very good garage perform this task. The passenger side motor mount is in the middle of the belt and must be detached before the new belt can be installed. This is dangerous and the engine must be properly supported before the mount can be removed or damage could result.
Serpentine belts are designed to be very long lasting so it may be possible that the belt may be fine but the belt tensioner may be weak instead. Please consult that garage or dealership, this is really not something for the weekend mechanic.
What the P0016 code means. P0016 is the OBD-II generic code indicating that the camshaft position sensor for bank 1 does not correlate to the signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The camshaft timing is out of position due to the timing chain jumped teeth. The camshaft phaser is out of position due to problems with phaser.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the engine under cover.
Remove the crankshaft damper pulley.
Disconnect the control wiring harness connector, battery wiring harness connector and connector bracket to engine mounting insulator.
Remove the harness bracket. Remove the upper timing belt cover. Remove the water pump pulley. Remove the idler pulley.
Remove the auto tensioner. Remove the lower timing belt cover.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise and align each timing mark to set the number one piston to TDC of its compression stroke.
Remove the timing belt under cover rubber plug and then install special tool MD998738. Screw the special tool until it contacts the timing belt tensioner arm.
The special tool must be screwed in gradually at the rate of a 30 degree turn per second. If it is screwed in all at once, the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod will not easily retract and the tool may bend.
Gradually screw in the special tool and then align the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod set hole “A” with the timing belt tensioner adjuster cylinder set hole “B”.
Insert a wire or pin in the set holes to lock the assembly in place. After removing the special tool, loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolts and remove the timing belt. If the belt is being reused be sure to mark the direction of rotation (clockwise) on the belt.
Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, tensioner arm and adjuster.
Remove the timing belt idler pulley. Remove the timing belt lower cover bracket. Remove the crankshaft position sensor.
Remove the crankshaft pulley center bolt and washer. Remove the drive sprocket. Remove the crankshaft angle sensing blade.
Remove the balancer timing belt tensioner. Remove the timing belt “B” (balancer belt) from its mounting.

This is a fairly easy repair.It does not require any technical work at all.It is a job that should take a mechanically inclined person about two hours to accomplish in their garage of their house.Any other questions get back to me....Thx..
Most manufacturers will tell you to change the timing belt every 60,000 miles or so. If it's true that it's actually skipping time now, CHANGE IT! Are you sure it's the timing belt skipping or is it something else like an ignition problem? Is your check engine light on?
I hope this helps! Let me know if I can be of further assistance. :)
