About Volvo C70:

The C70 coupe has nicely weighted steering and good brakes. Its 2.4-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine is very responsive in everyday driving and was available with either an automatic or a manual transmission. Handling is capable and braking is good, but the ride is stiff. A convertible was also available, which was the only body style offered in 2004 — the last year of production for this generation. A new, more sleekly styled C70 convertible with seating for four debuted for 2006 with a power-operated retractable hardtop and a turbocharged five-cylinder engine. Manual and automatic transmissions were again available. Handling is sound, but the ride is a little stiff. The interior is well finished. The C70 features the standard assortment of Volvo safety features. The car was discontinued in 2013.

NOTE: Volvo vehicles do not require a formal reset procedure for any of the TPM system functions. Tire pressure sensor IDs are automatically programmed while driving.

CAUTION: When inflating tires with TPMS valves, press the pump’s mouthpiece straight onto the valve to help avoid bending or otherwise damaging the valve.

NOTE: This system may not function properly if vehicle is equipped with a temporary spare tire or winter wheel/tire, as this tire does not have a TPM system sensor.

Tire Pressure Warning

There are two warning levels that generate different warning messages, one warning for low pressure and a warning for very low pressure. A message is also displayed if a sensor stops transmitting or receives insufficient battery voltage. A warning lamp also lights in the Driver information module (DIM) at the same time as the warning message appears.

The easiest way to reset a warning is to fill the underinflated tire to specification. The warning in the Driver information module (DIM) disappears the next time the ignition is switched on. If air is filled in a tire that has warned of low pressure and the ignition is on during the entire process, the warning will go out as soon as the pressure in the tire exceeds the specified level.

Tire Sensor Learning

If a sensor must be replaced, the system must “learn” the new sensor ID. This can be carried out in 2 different ways:

NOTE: The vehicle must be parked for longer than 15 minutes to learn the new ID.

  1. Drive the vehicle faster than 25 mph (40 km/h) for longer than 10 minutes. The warning for low pressure remains in the Driver information module (DIM) until the Central electronic module (CEM) has identified the new sensor.
  2. Programming “by hand”. This is carried out using the appropriate Volvo tire sensor activation tool, or Low Frequency (LF) initiator (sensor activation tool). Activating the tire pressure sensors this way replaces driving.NOTE: The Volvo tire sensor activation tool does not work with the sensors on S40 (04-)/V50/C30/C70 (06-)
