  2. New TPMS Sensor problem on 2014

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    Hi all I have a UK spec RHD MY2014 Volt (which is quite rare in the UK). When I bought it, it came with an extra set of new rims and new bagged Acdelco TPMS sensors. After having no problems with TPMS, I recently needed four new tyres. I got the new tyres fitted to the new rims with the new...
  3. Snow Tires for the Bolt EV

    Chevy Bolt EV Accessories, Mods, Wheels & Tires
    I just bought a set of steel wheels and Blizzak WS 80's for the Bolt today (tirerack.com). Last winter I had my wife drive my Volt (with snows). This year, we will both be equipped. The steel wheels were no heavier that the aluminum and even lighter than some! They can take a beating (potholes)...
  4. Procedure for using TPMS tool to rotate/swap rims?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm having a difficult time finding the procedure for using a TPMS tool (such as the ATEQ VT15 TPMS Universal Activator) to rotate/swap rims, for the Volt itself. That is, using the tool seems very simple, but what do I have to do in the Volt to ensure the Volt resets the tires too? Since I...
  5. 2011 TPMS relearn question

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    howdy, I have a 2011 Volt. I understand that 2011 models (but not 2012 or newer) can use this decreasing air pressure technique after a tire rotation to inform the car of the new position of each tire. my question: Does this technique only work when the same four TPMS sensors that the car...
  6. Tire Rotation and TPMS questions

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Has anyone rotated their tires on their MY2016/2017? My 2017 has reached 10,000 km. I usually do this on my own on my other vehicles. I don't have a TPMS relearn tool and was wondering if anyone has purchased one? Or can a reset be done without the tool? Or do people just take it into the...
  7. Service Tire Monitor System warning - SOLVED

    Electrical Systems - Chevy Volt
    I had a few days of thinking I ruined my 2012 Volt after doing a mod to the outside air temperature circuit (to stop the ERDTT). It ended up that the mod had nothing to do with the problem, but I didn't know that at the time. I made the temperature sensor mod under the passenger seat of the...
  8. TPMS problems and RCDLR Replacement

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I am paying to have the RCDLR replaced on my 2013 Volt although it is still under warranty. This is due to TPMS problems which have been ongoing for 18 months without resolution. The car has been into the dealership many many times and each time I have asked to have the K77 RCDLR replaced as...
  9. TPMS Reset + EVSE harder to plug in?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello fellow Volt owners, A few questions, I have switched over to winter tires yesterday at a local shop, new michelin xice 3 with TPMS sensors (wow those tires are dead silent!!). When they gave me back the car, they told me that reprogramming the TPMS appeared to be unnecessary as when they...

    Hi Everyone! URGENT HELP PLEASE! My Volt has been great! But last night when leaving work I've got a couple issues that didn't go away this morning ;( 1) Vehicle message 'Tyre Locations Not Known'. This has also triggered 'Service Tyre Monitoring System'. The system is working and reading...
  11. Dense Fog and TPMS

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Yesterday, way too early in the morning, I was driving in Central Penna in a rather dense and pervasive fog. Water was condensing and dripping all over the exterior of the Volt as it cut through the fog at 40-45 or so mph. Suddenly the flat tire with exclamation mark light started flashing on...

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    Hi there everyone, Planning to change my wheel & tyre combo as soon as I pick up my new Volt. Quick question, & Please excuse my ignorance, Do I have to purchase another 4 TPMS for the new rims or can the TPMS be removed from the standard rim? Thanks in advance. P.S Just upgrading to 18...
  13. TPMS Saved Me Yesterday

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    After shoveling my 300 ft driveway I took the Volt out for a short drive. A few minutes in I saw an alert that my front right tire was low, PSI down to 27. All the other tires were in the 42-43 range. Normally PSI is higher, but temperatures were in the low single digits. By the time I...
  14. TPMS Tire Sensor Info

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    After trying to track down a set of TPMS sensors for a set of winter wheels I figured I'd share the best deal I found online after my dealer was quoting around $60 each for original equipment schrader's and like $100 for labor... :confused: You can buy the original TPMS sensors online if you...

  16. Snow Tires Quote for 2013 Chevy Volt (Nokian)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi all, I know it's early but since I got the hail damage ($3000) fixed at my local autobody and repair shop, I decided to get a quote for snow tires. The shop is almost walkable from my home and they offered to store a set of tires for each season if we go forward. I told the manager that...
  17. If you use the Volt air compressor/inflator tool...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I decided to use the Volt's air compressor/inflator to regularly top-off my tires. I figured it's much more convenient than driving to a gas station (which could increase the tire pressure), paying the $1 (or more), and inflating my tires. At any rate, please be aware that the built-in...
  18. Tire Pressure Monitoring System showing no pressure in one tire

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have had a new 2012 Volt for about 3 weeks. The TPMS indicator keeps coming on intermittently (at least once every time I drive it) saying the front right tire is not there! I mean it doesn't show a pressure of zero, it shows two dashes (--), all the other tires are fine. I have had it into...
  19. Tire Pressure Monitor Accuracy

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I have noticed that both the dash display and MyVolt.com often show varying readings for tire pressure when the car is parked. They seem to bounce around a bit, sometimes showing this or that tire low by a pound or two. And of course, when driving it changes and all 4 show the same pressure...
