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?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/331743811143?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&fromMakeTrack=true

Maybe its just an error in the ebay seller's info?

This other listing also doesn't have the volt as a listed vehicle:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/282280823528?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&fromMakeTrack=true

When I search for the 2016 TPMS part number, the listing does correctly list the 2016 volt as supported:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/4-NEW-135987...ash=item25bb9b472f:g:~Q4AAOSwn8FXRhzw&vxp=mtr

I am pretty sure the P/N 13598773 is correct for the 2017, just would like to double check before ordering since I may not be able to return them because the auction explicitly said they dont work...

Thanks for the reply. I can't get the ones you linked shipped to canada, but they have the same part number as the ebay listings I linked, so that's all the confirmation I was looking for.

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.

On a similar subject, does anyone know what is the right tool to buy to do a TPMS relearn for a 2015 Volt?

I was thinking of "TPMS Reset tool EL-50448 Auto Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor OEC-T5 for GM vehicle" on eBay. Has anyone tried that?

I tried letting the air out of the tire. It did not work.

I tried a reasonably strong magnet. It did not work either.

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 guess I am a few days late to the discussion. I live in Canada as well, but I am close to the US border and have a mailbox there, where I shipped these TPMS sensors for my 2017 Volt, and they work fine.https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B018Y044FY/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new (The URL seems to redirect some strage place. Search for :13598773 Tire Pressure Sensors TPMS Set of (4) 433 MHz Acadia Enclave Traverse ;on amazon.com)
I ordered a TPMS programmer from China on Ebay, and it was only $70CAN, and it did the trick.http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281994415815?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT The tool was shipped to Canada in about 3 weeks.

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 doubt it, even though the frequency is the same, the communication protocol is different between GM and Chrysler's TPMS receiving module.
