Peg Perego Polaris 4 wheeler, won't move

The foot pedal or accelerator button that is pushed to start the 4 wheeler doesn't work anymore. It began a few weeks ago, it would go on and off like something was loose. But after I looked at it closer, nothing on the outside seems to be loose making me think a switch is bad or something of that sort.

Can anybody help? Thanks.

    Same thing here, but we've only had it a week. It's goes like heck and then nothing! If we wait a minute it will go again.

    I have charged it for 2 days and it just stopped going. It won't go at all. Battery was changed but still no life in it.

May need battery or is just rusted!
I'd buy a can or two of WD 40 or similiar lubricant and spray it all over all the rusted metal I can get to then turn the wheels by hand as much as possible but that's just me!
Good Luck!

I have a peg perego polaris quad that someone gave me, They said I just needed a new battery which I got, plugged it in today, does not work. The battery comes charged as far as I can tell, the green...

check the sharger with a multimeter to make sure that its putting out enough volts, Is it a 6v or 12v quad, also i've seen alot of peg perego batteries where the wires on the battery itself have come disconnected under the plastic housing, you can use an auto body panel trim removal tool to pop the plastic piece on one side of the battery to check and see if the wires are connected

How do you open prima perego prima pappa high chair. lost manuel

There should be a pedal on the bottom support that has a red tab. Press down on that with your foot while pulling up on the tabs on the side. This will expand the unit. This is for the Prima Pappa Best model. There are other Prima Pappa models though.

4 wheeler by peg perego

its most likely bad. put the leads from a test light on the terminals of the motor and press the pedal. If the light DOES turn on, you have a bad motor, or at least bad brushes in the motor. Most likely, the light will not come on, and you should check all the wiring for loose connections or faults going from motor to the pedal switch, and from battery to switch. The switch should be a momentary contact switch, and cheap universal replacements can be found at hardware stores, auto parts stores(NAPA is your best bet), and radio shack. Bring the switch with you to the store! Also, use the test light on the wiring coming off the switch going to the motor right at the switch. If the light comes on, and the switch is good, that'll tell you that the wiring from the switch to the motor is faulty somewhere.

Peg perego polaris 4 wheeler

If it runs only in slow speed your hi/lo speed switch is bad. Cheapest I've found is at part#MEPU002 for $11.00 plus $2.00 shipping USP. Hope that helps.

Peg Perego Gator Ride On Toy

Sounds like the gears are stripped. If a bunch of teeth are missing, only the high speed gear will spin the gears fast enough to move the gator forward. I just bought a used one and found it pretty easy to tear apart and diagnose as similar issue. The gear boxes, located inboard of each wheel contain plastic gears and strip relatively easy if the shifter is moved , during motion from forward to reverse.
