SAFE DRIVING RULES
Before children use this vehicle, an adult should carefully
evaluate the driving area as well as the child’s skill level
and ability to drive the vehicle safely. Teach appropriate
safety rules to your child before allowing operation of
this vehicle. These rules should also be reviewed with
other playmates who want to drive the vehicle.
• A child who is not sitting on the seat could fall off,
cause a tip over or block the driver’s view.
• Only operate the vehicle in the daytime in a well-lit area.
• Driving near steep inclines can cause:
• The vehicle to gain unsafe speed, even if the pedal is
released to stop.
• The vehicle to tilt and tip over
• The wheels to lose traction, causing the vehicle to slip.
• The vehicle could roll backwards at an unsafe speed.
• 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.
• Do not operate the vehicle near flammable vapors
(gasoline, paint thinner, acetone, liquid wax, etc.).
The vehicle’s electrical switches, like most electrical

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
shutdowns, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding
the 130 lbs. (59 kg) 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, 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

shutdowns, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding
the 130 lbs. (59 kg) 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.
Undercharged battery
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 wires and connectors. Make sure the
charger connector is plugged into the battery, and
that the charger is plugged into the wall.
Make sure power flow to the wall outlet is “ON”.
Overcharged battery
Do not charge the battery longer than 30 hours. If
you suspect that your battery is damaged as a result
of overcharging, contact your local Power Wheels®
authorized service center. They can test your battery
for you.
Battery is old and will not accept
full charge
Even with proper care, a rechargeable battery does
not last forever. Average battery life is 1 to 3 years
depending on vehicle use and use conditions.
Replace the battery with a new Power Wheels®
12 volt battery. Do not substitute parts.
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”, remove your foot from the pedal and
wait approximately 25 seconds before operating
the vehicle again. To avoid repeated automatic
shutdowns, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding
the 130 lbs. (59 kg) 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.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
SOLUTION
High speed lock-out not
disconnected
The vehicle was pre-set to run only in low speed. To
allow the vehicle to run in low and high speed, you
must disconnect the High Speed Lock-Out. Follow the
instructions on page 20 to remove the High Speed
Lock-Out screw.
When the foot pedal is pressed
one rear wheel spins
Operation of vehicle in low speed
It is possible that only one rear wheel may spin when
both rear wheels are raised off the ground and the
vehicle is in low speed. This does not necessarily
indicate a problem. Check for proper operation of the
drive system by raising the rear wheels off the ground
and pressing the foot pedal. If only one rear wheel
spins, carefully press your hand on the spinning
wheel to slow it down. The other rear wheel should
begin to spin. If the other rear wheel does not begin
to spin, there may be a problem with the vehicle.
