SMB 17-006 also gives detailed information regarding operations to conduct during the CPS (Customer Preparation Service).
CPS should only be completed just prior to actual retail delivery of the vehicle to the customer.
Model Year 2007 U.S. specification vehicles have only one recommended tire pressure. This is the case whether the vehicle is equipped with a Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) or not. It is critical during CPS (and whenever tire pressures are checked and set) that all 4 tires be set exactly to
the tire pressure indicated on the tire pressure label. This will assure that the customer has the best combination of ride, handling, and tire life.
Canadian specification vehicles continue to use labels with both a cold tire pressure and an optional tire pressure.
In all cases:
Use the recommended cold inflation pressure for optimum tire performance and wear.
There have been reports in the industry regarding the use of nitrogen for inflating tires. Volvo's position is that nitrogen is not required when servicing
tires. While it is not harmful to use, it is also not necessary. This is true even for vehicles with TPMS.
CALIBRATION OF TIRE PRESSURE MEASURING EQUIPMENT:
VIDA can be used to check a vehicle's tire pressures.
This is the path in VIDA to follow:
Diagnostics > Vehicle communication > UEM> Advanced > Quick Test
As the tire pressure displayed in VIDA is extremely accurate, this display can be used to 'calibrate' tire pressure measuring equipment in the service
workshop. Compare the VIDA reading with a tire pressure gauge, and compensate accordingly.
TPMS (TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM):
TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) was optional on certain Model Year 2005 and 2006 vehicles fitted with SST (self-supporting tires). TPMS is
standard equipment on all U.S. specification Model Year 2007 S60 (except S60R), V70 (except V70R), XC70, XC90, and S80 vehicles. It is planned to
be standard equipment on 100% of the U.S. specification Model Year 2008 vehicles. TPMS is optional on Model Year 2007 Canadian specification
The system must be regarded as a driver aid to maintain the correct tire pressure. TPMS does not take the place of good vehicle maintenance which
requires that tire pressure be checked on a regular basis. The owners' manual recommends to the owner that tire pressures be checked monthly. When
inflating the tire with air, you must, as much as possible, ensure that the tires are at same temperature as the outside temperature. When inflating with air,
the tires must be filled to the pressure stated on the decal located on the car body. These pressures MUST be followed.
