• Your Power Wheels® 12 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, avoid severe driving conditions.
• If a thermal fuse in a battery continually trips under
normal driving conditions, please contact your local
Power Wheels® Authorized Service Center.

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
switches, emit an internal spark when first turned on
or turned off, which could cause an explosion or fire.
• To prevent unsupervised use of the vehicle, disconnect
the motor harness from the battery when the vehicle is
not in use.

VEHICLE CARE
If a battery leak develops, avoid contact with the
leaking acid and place the damaged battery in a plastic
bag. See next section 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.
• Do not allow the battery to run down completely
before charging.
• Charge the battery before storing the vehicle, and at least
once per month, even if the vehicle has not been used.
• Charge the battery after each use, regardless of how
long the vehicle was used.
• Leaving the battery in a discharged condition will ruin it.

authorized service center.
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 firsttime 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”.

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 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 wires 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.

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
