ELECTRICAL HAZARD
CAUTION
WARNING
• Battery can fall out and injure a child if
vehicle tips over. Always use battery
retainer.
• PREVENT FIRE
- Never modify the electrical system.
Alterations could cause a fire resulting
in serious injury and could also ruin the
electrical system.
- Use of the wrong type battery or charger
could cause a fire or explosion resulting
in serious injury.
- Use of Power Wheels® components in
products other than Power Wheels®
vehicles could cause overheating, fire
or explosion.
• The battery must be handled by adults only.
The battery is heavy and contains sulfuric
acid (electrolyte). Dropping the battery
could result in serious injury.
• Never allow children to charge the battery.
Battery charging must be done by adults
only. A child could be injured by the electricity involved in charging the battery.
• Never lift or carry the battery by the wires
or connector. This can damage the battery
and possibly cause a fire resulting in
serious injury. Lift and carry the battery
by the case only.
• Read the safety instructions on the battery.
• Examine the battery, charger and their

each time you charge the battery. If
damage or excessive wear is detected, do
not use the charger or the battery until you
have replaced the worn or damaged part.
8
Use the charger in dry locations only.
About Thermal Fuses
Your Power Wheels® 6 volt battery is equipped with a built-in
thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a self-resetting safety device which
automatically “trips” and shuts down operation of the vehicle if the
vehicle is overloaded or the driving conditions too severe. Once
a fuse has “tripped”, remove your foot from the pedal and wait
approximately 25 seconds before operating the vehicle again.
To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs, do not overload the vehicle
by exceeding the 65 lb. (29.5 kg) maximum weight capacity or by
towing anything behind the vehicle. Avoid severe driving conditions,
such as driving up slopes or running into fixed objects, which can
cause the wheels to stop spinning while power is still being supplied
to the motors and make sure your child stops the vehicle before
switching direction.
If a thermal fuse in a battery continually trips under normal driving
conditions, please contact your local Power Wheels® Authorized
Service Center. For the location of the Authorized Service Center
nearest to you, visit us on-line at www.powerwheels.com,
or call 1-800-348-0751.
Important Notes
• Your new battery must be charged for at least 18 hours before
you use it in your vehicle for the first time.
• We recommend that you start charging your battery before
beginning assembly of your new vehicle.
• The battery must be upright while charging.
• The charger is not a toy.
• Do not short circuit the battery.
• You do not need to remove the battery from your vehicle to
recharge it.
• Before charging the battery, examine the battery case for cracks
and other damage which may cause sulfuric acid (electrolyte) to
leak during the charging process. If damage is detected, do not
charge the battery or use it in your vehicle. Battery acid is very
corrosive and can cause severe damage to surfaces it contacts.
• Do not charge the battery on a surface (such as a kitchen counter
top) which could be damaged by the acid contained inside the
battery. Take precautions to protect the surface on which you
charge your battery.
• Use only a Power Wheels® 6 volt charger with an A-style connector
(120 VAC, 60 Hz, 15W with an output of 6 VDC, 1200 mA)
to charge your Power Wheels® 6 volt battery.
Adults Note: Regularly examine the charger for damage to the
cord, plug, housing or other parts that may result in the risk of fire,
electric shock or injury. In the event of any damage, do not use
the charger until the damage has been properly repaired. Please
call 1-800-348-0751.
• If your battery is old and will not accept a charge, do not leave it in
the vehicle. Always remove a dead battery from the vehicle.

VEHICLE CARE
F
G
• Check all screws, cap nuts and their protective coverings regularly
and tighten as required. Check plastic parts on a regular basis for
cracks or broken pieces.
• During snowy or rainy weather, the vehicle should be stored inside
or under a protective cover. Remember to charge the battery at
least once per month while your vehicle is not in regular use.
• Avoid operating the vehicle in wet or snowy conditions, and do not
spray the vehicle with a hose. Do not wash the vehicle with soap
and water. Water or moisture in the motors or electrical switches
can cause them to corrode, and could cause switch or motor failure.
• Avoid operating the vehicle on sand, loose dirt or gravel. Sand,
loose dirt or gravel in the motors or electrical switches can cause
them to jam, and could cause switch or motor failure.
• The vehicle can be wiped down with a soft, dry cloth. For a shiny
finish, you can wipe plastic parts with a non-wax furniture polish
applied to a soft-cloth. Do not use automotive wax. Do not use
soap and water or spray the vehicle with a hose.
• To ensure that your vehicle stays in good operating order, we
recommend that you periodically have your vehicle checked by a
Power Wheels® authorized service center. For the location of the
authorized service center nearest you, please visit us on-line at

BATTERY CARE AND DISPOSAL
Care
If a battery leak develops, avoid contact with the leaking acid and
place the damaged battery in a plastic bag. See information below
for proper disposal.
If acid comes in contact with skin or eyes, flush with cool water for
at least 15 minutes and call a physician.
If acid is internally ingested, give water, milk of magnesia or egg
whites immediately. Never give emetics or induce vomiting. Call
a physician.
• Charge a new battery for at least 18 hours before first use.
Never charge the battery longer than 30 hours. Overcharging or
undercharging the battery may shorten battery life and decrease
vehicle running time.
• After the first charge, recharge the battery for at least 14 hours
after each use. Never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
Charge the battery after each use, regardless of how long the
vehicle was used.
• The battery must be upright while charging.
• Do not allow the battery to run down completely before charging.
• Charge the battery before storing the vehicle.
• Charge the battery at least once per month, even if the vehicle has
not been used.
• Leaving the battery in a discharged condition will ruin it.
• Always remove an exhausted battery from the vehicle. Battery
leakage and corrosion can damage the vehicle.
• Do not store the battery on a surface (such as a kitchen counter
top) which could be damaged by the acid contained inside the
battery. Take precautions to protect the surface on which you store
the battery.
• Do not store the battery in temperatures above 75° F or below -10° F.
• Use only a Power Wheels® 6 volt battery. Remember to charge the
new battery for at least 18 hours before first use.
• Prevent the battery from moving freely inside the battery compartment. Always use the battery retainer to secure the battery in
the battery compartment.
• Examine the battery, charger and their connectors for excessive
wear or damage each time you charge the battery. If damage is
detected, do not use the charger or the battery until you have
replaced the worn or damaged part.

battery. It must be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally
sound manner.
• Do not dispose of a lead-acid battery in a fire. The battery may
explode or leak.
• Do not dispose of a lead-acid battery in your regular, household
trash. The incineration, landfilling or mixing of sealed lead-acid

• Protect the environment by not disposing of this product with
household waste (2002/96/EC). Check your local authority for
recycling advice and facilities (Europe only).
• Return an exhausted battery to a federal or state approved lead-acid
battery recycler, such as a Power Wheels® authorized service center
or a local seller of automotive batteries. For the authorized service
center location nearest to you, please visit us on-line at

SAFE DRIVING RULES
K
RIDING HAZARD
WARNING
• Prevent Injuries and Deaths
• Direct Adult Supervision Required
• Never Ride at Night.
• Keep Children Within Safe Riding Areas.
These areas must be:
- away from swimming pools and other
bodies of water to prevent drownings
- generally level to prevent tipovers
- away from steps, cars, steep inclines,
roads and alleys.
• Riding Rules
Make sure children know and follow
these rules for safe driving and riding.
- Always sit on the seat.
- Always wear shoes.
- Only 1 (one) rider at a time.
Teach Safety Rules to Children
While children can quickly develop the skill necessary to drive this
vehicle, it is important to remember that their judgment skills are still
very immature. Unsupervised driving by children can lead to serious
injury. Before children use this vehicle, an adult should carefully
evaluate the driving area as well as the children’s skill level and ability
to drive this vehicle safely. Children are not always able to recognize
or anticipate hazards, even when they have been taught about them.
There is no acceptable substitute for direct adult supervision.
Teach appropriate safety rules to your child before allowing operation
of this vehicle. These rules should also be reviewed with neighborhood
children or other playmates who want to drive this vehicle.
Riding Rules
Make sure children know and follow these rules for safe driving:
1. Always sit on the seat.
2. Always wear shoes.
3. Only 1 (one) rider at a time. A child who is not sitting on the seat or
who is standing on the vehicle could fall off, cause a tip-over or block
the driver’s view. A child could be seriously injured.
4. Do not allow any child to drive the vehicle in the street or near
moving (motorized) vehicles.
5. Do not allow any child to drive near bodies of water (such as pools
or creeks), obstructions (such as furniture, low tree limbs or play
equipment), or drop-offs (such as stairs or decks).
6. Do not allow any child to drive the vehicle in the dark. A child could
encounter unexpected obstacles and have an accident. Operate the
vehicle only in the daytime or a well-lit area.
7. Do not allow your child to drive on sloped or inclined surfaces.
Restrict your child’s driving to generally level ground ONLY!
8. Do not allow your child to drive down or across a steep slope.
- The vehicle may gain unsafe speed, even if the pedal is released
to stop.
- The vehicle may tilt and tip over.
- The wheels could lose traction, causing the vehicle to slip.
9. Do not allow your child to drive up steep inclines. The motor may
stop and the vehicle could roll backwards at an unsafe speed.
10. Never put anything near any moving parts. Rotating parts such as
motors, gear boxes and wheels can snag fingers, hair, etc., causing
serious injury. Do not allow operation of the vehicle when it is on its
side or in an upside-down position.
11. Do not operate the vehicle near flammable vapors (gasoline, paint
thinner, acetone, liquid wax, etc.). The vehicle’s electrical switches,
like most electrical switches, emit an internal spark when first turned
on or turned off. The presence of flammable liquids or vapors could
cause an explosion or a fire. Keep all flammable products in tightly
sealed containers and away from the vehicle.
12. Do not allow a child to operate the vehicle without direct adult
supervision. To prevent unsupervised use of the vehicle, disconnect
the motor harness from the battery when the vehicle is not in use.
To disconnect the motor harness connector:
• Grasp the bottom edge of the grill and lift the hood.
• Unplug the motor harness connector from the battery connector.
• Lower the hood and "snap" it into place.

charger, contact your local Power Wheels® authorized service
center. They can test your charger for you.
Tripped thermal fuse
Each Power Wheels® 6 volt battery has a built-in thermal fuse.
A thermal fuse may “trip” and shut down operation of the vehicle
if the vehicle is overloaded or the driving conditions too severe.
Once a fuse has "tripped", remove your foot from the pedal and
wait 25 seconds before operating the vehicle again. To avoid
repeated automatic shutdowns, do not overload the vehicle by
exceeding the 65 lb. maximum weight capacity or by towing
anything behind the vehicle. Do not drive up hills or run into fixed
objects, which can cause the wheels to stop spinning while power
is still being supplied to the motors. If a thermal fuse continually
trips, contact your local Power Wheels® authorized service center.
Loose wire or loose connectors
Check all wires and connectors. Make sure the motor harness
connector is plugged into the battery connector, and that there are
no loose wires around the motors.
