Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

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

Dont know how to change the battery in Thomas Jet engine.


Hey. I was looking for the same thing and found this answer on yahoo answers:
"loosen the phillips-head screw on the underside front center of the jet engine train (you might not have noticed it - it is behind the coupling magnet assembly, which you can move to the side and also has an opening to access the screw) - once the screw is loosened, you can lift up the 'jet engine' from the base to access the battery enclosure"

I have tried to change the battery in Thomas but this seems impossible! I think it is 2002 model. I bought it for my grandson at a car boot sale today and it is in lovely condition but the battery is


Take the wheel base of the train in one hand. Point the' face straight up. Place your other hand on the top with you index finger on Thomas' face. Push down towards the ground with the hand on the top, and then pull apart. There is a little tab on the back that you need to get over. Some times the first time is the hardest.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".

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.
