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 50 lbs (23 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.
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® 6 Volt charger (input 120VAC
60 Hz with an output of 6 VDC 300-400 mA) to charge your
Power Wheels® 6 volt 4 Amp/Hr rechargeable 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.

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.
• 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 non-spillable 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.
• Protect the environment by not disposing of this product with
household waste (2002/96/EC). Check your local authority for
recycling advice and facilities (Europe only).
• Return an exhausted battery to a federal or state approved leadacid battery recycler, such as a Power Wheels® authorized service

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, steep inclines, cars,
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.
Use vehicle on generally level ground ONLY!
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.
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!
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.
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).

VEHICLE CARE
• Check all screws, retainers and protective coverings regularly

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. Water or moisture in the
motor 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 motor 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. Do
not use soap and water or spray the vehicle with a hose.
• To ensure that your vehicle stays in good operating order, we
recommend that you periodically have your vehicle checked by a

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”.
Vehicle was running but
suddenly stopped
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
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 50 lb (23 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 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 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
Contact your local Power Wheels® authorized service center
for diagnosis and repair.
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.
