About Thermal Fuses
Your Power Wheels 6 volt (4.0 Amp/Hr.) 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”, release the button on the
handlebar and wait approximately 25 seconds before operating
the vehicle again. To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs,
do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the 40 lbs (18 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.
®
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 (4.0 Amp/Hr.) charger (120
VAC 60 Hz) with an output of 6 VDC to charge your
Power Wheels 6 volt (4.0 Amp/Hr.) 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 call1-800-348-0751.
• 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.

SAFE DRIVING RULES
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 button 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.

VEHICLE OPERATION
IMPORTANT! Use this vehicle ONLY outdoors. Most interior
floor-ing can be damaged by riding this vehicle indoors.
Fisher-Price® will not be responsible for damage to the floor
if the vehicle is used indoors.

VEHICLE CARE
• Check all screws, lock 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 www.powerwheels.com or call 1-800-348-0751.

PROBLEM
Vehicle does not run
POSSIBLE CAUSE
Undercharged battery
SOLUTION
Charge the battery. A new battery should have been
charged for at least 18 hours before using the vehicle for
the first time. After first-time use, recharge the battery for
at least 14 hours after each use. Never charge the battery
longer than 30 hours.
Check all connectors. Make sure the battery connector is
tightly plugged into the charger connector, and that the
charger is plugged into the wall.
Make sure power flow to the wall outlet is “ON”.

Charger is not working
There is no sure way to tell if your charger is working unless
you have a volt meter. If you suspect there is a problem with
your charger, contact your local Power Wheels® authorized
service center. They can test your charger for you.
Tripped thermal fuse
The built-in 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", release
the button on the handlebar and wait 25 seconds before
operating the vehicle again. To avoid repeated automatic
shutdowns, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the
40 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 wires or loose connectors
Check all wires and connectors. Make sure the battery
connector is tightly plugged into the motor connector and that
there are no loose wires around the motors.
Dead battery
If your battery is old or if you have not followed Battery
Care instructions, your battery may be dead. If you are
unsure whether or not the battery is dead, you can have
it tested at your local Power Wheels® authorized
service center.
Electrical switch damage
The electrical switches can become corroded due to
exposure to water or moisture, or can jam due to loose dirt,
sand or gravel. Contact your local Power Wheels® authorized
service center for diagnosis and repair.
Motor damage
Contact your local Power Wheels® authorized service center
for diagnosis and repair.
