    I have the same problem except when you hold down the go button it makes the whistle and the light in front comes on but all it does is click. No movement when I got it it worked for about 5min after charging the battery for about 24 hours and then died and the charger could not bring back the battery so I ordered a new battery and charged until the light was green and this is where im at with the clicking. Is there something i can replace next? I just ordered a new charger but it has not come in yet. But I'm thinking the battery is charging enough to light the front light and play the song so it cant be to dead. any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have the exact same issue as ntribalart2 had the first go around. When FULLY charged the battery will work the lights and music and move the train for 3 minutes or so...then the train no longer moves but the light and music still work. The light does seem to dim intermittently. And, yes, I am aware that the right button must be held down by the child for the train to move. However, that is not the issue with mine. PLEASE help if you have any ideas. My 3 year old is CRAZY about the train and I don't know which part to try to replace, besides the battery. Thank you sooooo much.

The red button on the right must be held down for anything to move. It turns the lights on, makes some train noises, then moves forward. If you don't hold the button down, nothing will happen. Note that when the train is underway, the left red button becomes a train whistle. Otherwise, when the train is not running, that left button produces music. Hope this helps.

Thomas the Train Ride on Toy by Peg Perego goes slow and then stops.

It's possible the contacts on the battery are bent, so when the trains moves the contacts lose connection with the battery.
remove the battery, paying attention to whether or not the contacts are tight on the battery. Use a small screwdriver to bend the contact out, so it pushes on the battery with more force.You may need to fold up a small piece of foil and put it behind the tag to keep contact with the battery.Typically there is a spring on one side of the contact and a small copper tag on the other. if the tag cannot be bent outward, you may need to use a pair of needlenose pliers to stretch the spring out -be careful though, you could break the plastic mount for the spring which would ruin the train and give you one unhappy conductor!
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

I bought the peg perego train 2nd hand and the black button does not work to move the train

first of all check for at least 6 volts from the battery and the charger, you can test this using a multimeter, if the battery doesn't show any volts, lift up one side of the plastic housing on the top and verify that both the positive and negative wires are plugged in
