2013 Volvo S80 and XC70 recalled for TPMS software error

Some 300 2013 Volvo S80 sedans and XC70 wagons are being recalled by Volvo due to TPMS software errors. What happens is that the tire pressure monitoring system would display “TPMS Service Required” on the vehicle dash even if the pressure in the tires are inflated to vehicle specifications. This error can pose a real problem to drivers since it prevents the TPMS system from accurately alerting the driver if one or more tires is actually underinflated.
