Why not support your local tire shop?I need to rotate my tires on my 2017 - and from what I read in the manual, you need one of the relearn tools to do it properly.
I like to do my own basic vehicle maintenance... not worth it to me to make an appointment and waste an hour or two at a dealer. I don't have the TPMS tool so I might just wind up rotating the tires and keeping a little note about which tire corresponds to which wheel on the dash indicator.
I found how. For the Volt 2017, you need to :you definitely need the tool. They're not very expensive. Well worth for us that use winter tires and need it twice a year.
Otherwise, many mechanics (and here in Montreal, some dealerships) will learn the sensors for free...
I just changed back over to summer tires and didn't set the parking brake (forgot). Still worked. I think the parking brake step is just lawyer-speak because they have you turn the car "on" then get out and walk around.I tried to figure it out through the menu, and I had to refer to the manual. The tricky part was that the emergency brake had to be deployed.
I mean technically you are supposed to set the parking brake every time you put a vehicle in park, as well, so that is probably correct.I just changed back over to summer tires and didn't set the parking brake (forgot). Still worked. I think the parking brake step is just lawyer-speak because they have you turn the car "on" then get out and walk around.
2011 model (and maybe 2012) could use tire deflation method, but not after that. Even if possible, the new low prices for the relearn tool make it much more sensible to use the tool and avoid having drop pressures and then refill.Can this procedure be done by deflating the tires in order, instead of using the activation tool?
I've seen some cars do it like this, including Chevys.
