I overrode AMT amounts to match my final return prepared by a CPA. Turbo tax now shows error messages. How can I correct the 2015 AMT numbers used in my 2016 return? Or, can I go ahead and file with the error messages?

I have compared the AMT adjustments and know that my override numbers are correct.  The 2015 estimated numbers in Turbo Tax are in error.

Overrides void the TurboTax accuracy guarantee and cannot be e-filed.

Thank you.  Can I fix the incorrect numbers in the 2015 file and transfer to 2016 without starting over.

Thank you.  Can I correct the 2015 amounts in the return since it was never filed and transfer values without starting the 2016 return over?

Since you overrode, I am assuming that you are using the CD/download version that has the forms mode.  Try switching to the forms mode and open the "Carryover Wks".  Line 17 should have the 2015 AMT carryover and that *can* be changed without an override since it is a user entered item.
