I would check and make sure the wiring on the foot pedal is on.
The Peg perego polaris models will sometimes get corrosion on the red wire.
I called the guys at this website and they said to check the red connection. sure enough the connector was barely hanging on.
Hope this helps

After 2 days mine would no longer run in reverse and also slow speed. In high speed it would only turn 1 of the rear wheels. Turns out that one of the wire popped off the motor on the wheel that would not turn. Remove the wheel that does not turn, slowely lift the motor, find the wire that popped off it's post and re-attach. That should fix it!

Our Super Gaucho 24volts is 2-years-old and barely used. Now the battery is not lasting to long. Is this normal? I mean, with a more frequent charging/use will its performance be improved? Thx ahead &...

Unfortunately the batteries just lose their holding power after awhile, and if you don't keep them charged every few months (like during winter if your child isn't riding, you still need to charge / refresh the battery every 2 months or so, if it isn't charged for a few months, it'll lose some of it's holding power), that's a very common problem. Our 24V Perego batteries for our Gaucho only seem to last like 30 minutes of constant riding (my son rides non stop sometimes for 30+ minutes). If you check out the site , people convert them to use non Perego batteries that run for much longer!

Ranger on a full charge stops working within 5 minutes. After 3 minutes or so, it runs again. Is the battery fried? Or is it overheating? It is aprox 1 year old. It is being run on flat ground. Please help

If power stops abruptly then theres a chance there coul be a loose connection and needs investigting. If power winds down and stopsthen yes the battery is probley fried.

My son's Peg Perego only runs in reverse. Any suggestions?

41 • GEAR SHIFT LEVER: The vehicle has three
speeds. ATTENTION: When the vehicle is first
removed from the packing, it only runs in first
gear (1) and reverse (R). To use the second gear
(2), proceed as follows:
42 • Screw down the second gear unit, as shown in
the following figure.
43 • 1-R: The second gear unit protrudes from the
chassis, preventing the gearshift lever from
moving down to the second gear. 1-2-R: The
second gear unit is completely screwed into
the chassis, and the gearshift lever can be

Peg pregeo 800 worked for 30 mins. then just stopped.

Although the problem is not the exact same, it is similar. I finally got mine fixed (see post about does not work when pedal is pushed) My problem was the shifter was bad, or the plug for the shifter was bad. I had to take to Rural King to get it fixed, PP service locations are too far away from me .. hope this helps some.

Does not run when I push the pedal, it is brand new and has run once for 2 hours on an 18 hour charge, called PP and they told me to move the red pedal wire to the blue location (bypass) nothing happened....

OMG! The exact same situation here! Bought through Amazon, no warranty. I am so bummed. It was rode 5 times by a five year old on flat ground. Now it is a brand new, non operational, made in China piece of $500- junk! I am furious!!!When you press on pedal, nothing happens, fully charged battery, etc. Volt meter even confirmed fully charged battery. What ever happened in your situation? I am so hesitant to buy other parts, or send it here, to put more money into an overpriced piece of ****. Way to ruin Christmas!
