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 are too severe. Once a fuse has “tripped,” DO NOT CONTINUOUSLY PUSH ON THE POWER BUTTON. It will automatically reset itself after approximately 2 minutes and allow the vehicle to resume normal operations. To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the 45 lbs (20 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.
