Changing wheels with TPMS

Changing wheels with TPMS  - Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Wheels and tires - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

Please note the following when changing or replacing the factory installed TPMS wheels/ tires on the vehicle:

  • Only the factory-mounted wheels are equipped with TPMS sensors in the valves.
  • If the vehicle is equipped with a temporary spare tire, this tire does not have a TPMS sensor.
  • If wheels without TPMS sensors are mounted on the vehicle, TIRE PRESS SYST SERVICE REQUIRED will be displayed each time the vehicle is driven above 25 mph (40 km/h) for 10 minutes or more.
  • Once TPMS sensors are properly installed, the warning message should not reappear. If the message is still displayed, drive the vehicle for several minutes at a speed of 20 mph (30 km/h) or faster to erase the message.
  • Volvo recommends that TPMS sensors be fitted on all wheels used on the vehicle. Volvo does not recommend moving sensors back and forth between sets of wheels.

CAUTION

When inflating tires with TPMS valves, press the pump's mouthpiece straight onto the valve to help avoid bending or otherwise damaging the valve.

NOTE NOTE

  • If you change to tires with a different recommended inflation pressure, the TPMS system must be recalibrated to these tires. On U.S. models, this must be done by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician. On Canadian models, see the following section "Recalibrating TPMS."
  • If a tire is changed, or if the TPMS sensor is moved to another wheel, the sensor's seal, nut, and valve core should be replaced.
  • When installing TPMS sensors, the vehicle must be parked for at least 15 minutes with the ignition off. If the vehicle is driven within 15 minutes, a TPMS error message will be displayed.
