Tyre should ideally be checked around once every two weeks and especially before a long journey. Running a vehicle on under-inflated tyres reduces vehicle stability and increases fuel consumption.
In order for the Volvo XC60 tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to operate correctly, recommended pressures for the fitted tyres must be saved in the system.
This tyre pressure reference value is used to warn the driver of under-inflation. Resetting / calibrating the tyre pressure system must take place every time:
- A tyre is changed
- Tyre pressures are altered
If the fitted tyres are the same make and model of those that are factory fitted by Volvo, use the tyre pressure values located on the placard inside the driver’s door on the B-pillar.
