If its the one that comes with rails there's a round hole connection similar to a mobile phone charger connection at the back or side of engine I believe it's by seat somewhere

Water damaged ride on thomas the tank engine.

first of all check for at least 12 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 blue plastic housing on the top and verify that both the positive and negative wires are plugged in

Thomas electric ride on will not charge

Here are a few things to check - Is your battery charger plugged into a known working outlet? Is the charger plugged into a switch controlled outlet? Is it ON? Have you checked the output voltage of the charger with a volt meter? The in and out voltage should be molded into the charger housing. Is there any internal damage? Are you sure the battery is connected to the wires inside? Is the motor connected through the controller? Is there a fuse - have you checked it? Is the ON/OFF switch in the on position and is it actually ON? Check with a Volt/Ohm meter to be sure. How old is the battery? Can you check its voltage? Expect 1 to 2 years use only. If you get more, well you got more ... good. If it is older, that may be the problem. Volt Ohm meters available for around $10.00 at hardware and electronics stores. All come with basic instructions.
Thanks for your question @

Have lost charger 4 ride ad go thomas will any 6v charger fit it and where do u charge it anyway is it the hole at the back of the train


It looks like the charger has a specific plug terminated on the end so I would suggest buying the manufacturers replacement part. It can be purchased in the UK from the below links for around £35 or slightly cheaper form ebay but from a seller in the USA (third link below).

The charger model number is MECB0037.

Hope this helps.

I bought an MPV5 used. Batteries won't charge. Charger light is green after 24 hours...slight power surge then dies. The seller said it hadn't been plugged in for a long time. I also noticed the batteries...

Lets solve this, one question at a time ....
First your batteries are not charging,This may be because of it siting for too long without a charge.The batteries may be so dead that your charger cannot reconize them. dont losse hope there are ways to check your batteries and charger with out spending alot of money on a tech coming over.
1) Unplug and remove your batteries from the chair
2) Find your self a charge that trickle charge
(Note: If you have a batterie charger ,trickle charge is the lowest set charge)
3) Trickle charge each batterie to about 50%
4) Install batteries back on to chair
5) Plug in chair charger
The chairs charger should come on ,and that right there tells you that you have a good charger!
The batteries that came with this chair are not bad and are considered ok to use .These type of batteries are what you call maintenance batteries ,which your always having to check if the leaking or need water.The gell type batteries are what they call non-maintenance.That you dont have to always look after but are more money.Thats why they recommend the gells so that the user doesn't have to work on there chair.

I hope that was helpful ,Happy Riding
