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® Super 6 volt charger with an A-style
connector (input 120 VAC, 60 Hz with an output of 6 VDC, 7.2W)
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
• Check all screws, hex nuts and their protective coverings

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.
• 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.

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 where you store
the battery.

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
ake sure children know and follow these rules for safe driving:
M
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!
Use on generally level ground ONLY!
P5064pr-0922
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.

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 charger connector is plugged
into the battery 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
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.
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
