    2006 STS-V owners with functional Onstar

    Any of you 2006 owners with working Onstar, do you have/use the monthly diagnostic report sent via e-mail ? If so does it supply you with TPS (Tire Pressure Sensor) readings in the e-mail ? Onstar is telling me that's not supported in our year / model.

    I hit it on accident once. I didn't know you could get reports from it.

    Well now wouldn't that be a damn shame if an 05 CTS-V can have them read, but an 06 STS-V cannot ?

    Yes, but typical Matt. Just like my '07 CTS isn't "capable" of turn-by-turn navigation but a 2007 Buick (or Saturn) IS.

    I get the e-mails for two of my cars . . .

    2006 STS-V - no TPS update . . .

    2008 HHR SS - I get the TPS update . . . I gues you pay 1/4 the price and get more functions!

    Maybe because our cars came with RUN-FLATS. Do Z06 owners get TPS reports?

    My 05 CTS-V came with run flats and I got the TPS portion on the monthly report.

    Its probably because they forgot to put the new coversheet on the TPS reports. They are putting the new coversheets on all TPS reports now. Did you get that memo? Sorry, I just couldn't help myself....

    Re: 2006 STS-V owners with functional Onstar

    The TPS reports were just added a few months ago. I have gotten an On-Star report via email every month since my car was new and the TPS report has never been there. It has not been added since OnStar advertised that this was available. If the 08 model gets this data, it might be available as a software update on the car.

    Interesting note, my first few reports in 2006 came in with my car listed as a regular STS. After a few months, it was listed as a "V" with a picture of a silver model. After another few months, the picture changed to the proper Black Raven.
