TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)*1 - adjusting (recalibration)

Tyre pressure monitoring (TPMS) (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)* warns the driver when the pressure is too low in one or more of the car's tyres.

TPMS can be adjusted in order to follow Volvo's tyre pressure recommendations, when driving with a heavy load for example.


The car must be stationary when calibration is started.
Settings are made using the centre console's controls, see MY CAR.
Inflate the tyres to the desired pressure in accordance with the tyre pressure label on the driver's side door pillar (between front and rear doors).
Start the engine.
Select the menu system MY CAR to open the menus for tyre pressure.
Select Calibrate tyre pressure and press OK.
Drive for at least 10 minutes at a speed of at least 30 km/h.
Calibration is performed automatically following initialisation by the driver. The system provides no confirmation when the calibration is complete.

The new reference values apply until steps 1-5 are carried out again.
