Ours is a seven-month-old, 5,000-mile Bolt Premier. This morning in moderate (40-degree) temp, the right front TPMS reading went AWOL.

I own the relearn tool, so I can do it myself, but why should a less-than-a-year-old sensor go missing? The worry is our GM/Cadillac/Saab 9-4X has had the same TPMS dropping problem over the years, but less than one year is too soon for battery failure. Has anyone else had a TPMS drop-out with the Bolt? Is it a bug inherent in GM hardware/software?

I wouldn't be so quick to say bug unless this is happening to a lot of people. Sometimes, things just happen. Isn't it covered under warranty?

$hit happens, you're covered under the 36K mi bumper to bumper warranty in any case.

Did you try re-learning it?

Not yet. On non-critical problems, observation sometimes aids diagnosis. On the '11 GM, the TPMS comes and goes; sometimes fixes itself, sometimes requires relearning. Just watching to see how the '17 behaves.

Replace the one in the Saab and let Chevrolet replace the one in your Bolt. Problem solved.
