Does the engine rev up when you press on the gas or bog down?
Do you smell a funny smell when the truck is running?

Hot wheels moto jumper toy doesn't jump


I had the same problem and I feel like a bit of an idiot now after finding out the solution. The instructions are simple. Bike extended, buttons in and push down. What they don't express, and they really need to, is that the bike needs to be FULLY extended WHEN the buttons are depressed. If the bike is the least bit compressed when you push the buttons it will NOT engage the jump springs. You almost need three hands to do this sucessfully but after you get the hang of it, it is really easy. Though not so easy your average 4 year old will be able to do it. What I've found works great is loading the jump spring and then rolling it backwards to my son to allow him to roll it forward.

Jumps forward when brakes are applied at intersections when stopping Doesn't happen all the time.


I don't know if this would be considered a solution or not but in 2006 Ford implemented a new transmission (6 speed automatic) and they have and still have a lot of problems. It is fixed (helped may be more appropriate) by a computer upgrade done by the dealership. MY wife has had nothing but problems out of her 2006 limited ford explorer. The whole computer system had to be replaced at 32,000 miles and then they charged us to upgrade the new computer they put into the car. It's almost comical at this point. The transmission problem has been solved for the most part on our vehichle but it took several ford computer updates. I hope this helps!

Rewind and fast forward


Put the cd in when it loads and display the disc time, you can then spin the round wheels forward or backwards to the place on the song that you're playing, this only work when the song is paused or stopped. If the disc is playing the wheels are only used to slow down or speed up the song.

Computer time will not stay the same


Hey,

Check that the timezone setting is correct, often if the timezone is set incorrectly the time may jump a few hours forward or backward when the computer syncs the time.

Thanks,
