I read on the forums that the 2016 and 2017 use different TPMS frequencies (which is really stupid)....also, the TPMS from my gen1 dont seem to work with my 2017 (tried to 'learn' with my tpms tool and got no response), so I need to order some new ones. I found the following on the forums:
The correct part number for 2016 Volts is 13598772 (315mHz). The correct part number for 2017 Volts is 13598773 (433mHz).
But, the ebay listing I was about to order from says the sensor P/N 13598773 is NOT compatible with a 2017 volt....so what gives?
13598773 is the correct part to order, eBay lookup tables are generic, hence not able to comprehend TPMS frequency change within one calendar model year.
If and when you get them, make sure you double check the part number on each sensor (part number and broadcast frequency (433 MHz). The shape/assembly is similar to some other part number that is broadcasting 315 MHz.
Yes, that is the correct tool and the one I went with. Here is a link to the auction I purchased mine from. Took a few weeks to arrive, but it was in perfect brand new shape and worked great on the first try!
Thanks for the advice and tips folks. I ordered the sensors....now when I swap my old snows to the new rims + tpms I'll have a set of rims + TPMS for gen1 I'll be selling if there is any interest (I'll make a separate post for that, but this is advanced warning )
I have 433mhz TPMS sensors that I bought in 2012 for a Dodge Caravan that I never got around to install. Wondering if they would work with the Volt 2017? Maybe valve won't be right size but what about the module itself if I can find a valve stem that fits both the sensor and my Volts steel winter rims? Batteries still good after 5 years of sitting in a bag in basement
Here is a link to the TPMS that I bought way back then and still selling on ebay

I used this tool, it was easy to use and did the job.
