About Volvo XC60

The XC60 is a compact, upscale SUV that’s pleasurable to drive but not as sporty as some competitors. The ride is a little stiff, but handling is responsive and secure at its limits. The 281-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder performs well, but fuel economy is mediocre at 17 mpg overall. A 3.2-liter six is also available. Most exterior noises are well suppressed. The cabin is attractively finished with high-quality materials and offers integrated child booster seats in the rear seat. The seats are well shaped and comfortable, but rear legroom is a bit tight. A wide variety of advanced safety gear is offered. Stability control with roll mitigation is standard, along with Volvo’s City Safety system, which is more widely known as forward collision mitigation. The technology package also offers adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and a lane-departure warning system. An optional blind-spot sensor alerts drivers to hidden vehicles on their flanks.

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-)
