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”,
it will automatically reset itself after approximately
25 seconds and allow the vehicle to resume normal
operations. To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs,
do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the 50 lbs
(22.5 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. Make sure your child stops
the vehicle before switching speeds or direction.
If a thermal fuse in a battery continually trips under
normal driving conditions, please contact your local
independently owned and operated Power Wheels®
Authorized Service Center. For the location of the
nearest you, visit us on-line at www.powerwheels.com.
IMPORTANT!

• 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.
• 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.
• Once installed, 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 kitchen
counter tops) 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® Type H 6 volt charger
(120 VAC, 60 Hz, 12W with an output of 6 VDC 4.8W
800mA) to charge your Power Wheels® Type H
6 volt battery.

from the motor harness connector.
• Plug the charger into a standard wall outlet.
Note: If power flow to the wall outlet is controlled by a
switch, make sure the switch is “ON”.
• Before first-time use, charge the battery for at least
18 hours. Never charge the battery longer than 30 hours.
• Recharge the battery for at least 14 hours after each
use of your vehicle. Do not charge the battery longer
than 30 hours.
• Once the battery is charged, disconnect the charger
connector from the battery connector. Unplug the
charger from the wall outlet. The battery is now
ready to be installed in your vehicle. Please see the
Battery Installation section on page 17 for detailed

Battery Care and Disposal
Care
Disposal
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 kitchen
countertops) 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.
• Prevent the battery from moving freely inside the battery
compartment. Always use the battery clamp (engine
cover) 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.
• Your Power Wheels® battery is a sealed lead-acid
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 batteries with household trash is
prohibited by law in most areas.
• Return exhausted batteries 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 service center location nearest you,
please call 1-800-348-0751. Contact your local waste
management officials for other information regarding the
environmentally sound collection, recycling and disposal
of lead-acid batteries. If you live in the State of Florida or
Minnesota, it is prohibited by law for anyone to throw
away lead-acid batteries in the municipal waste stream.

Rules for Safe Driving
RIDING HAZARD
WARNING
Prevent Injuries and Deaths
• Direct Adult Supervision Required
• 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, driveways, cars,
roads and alleys.
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.
Use vehicle on generally level ground ONLY!
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 an
battery connector:
– Lift the hood.
– Remove the battery clamp (engine cover).
– Squeeze the tabs on the motor harness connector to
unplug it from the battery connector.
– Replace the battery clamp (engine cover).
– Lower the hood and fasten the hood latches.

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”.

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. The fuse will automatically reset itself after
approximately 25 seconds, allowing the vehicle to resume
normal operation. To avoid repeated automatic shutdowns,
do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the 50 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 battery
connector is tightly plugged into the motor harness 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 are dead, you can have
it tested at your local Power Wheels® authorized
service center.
