Question about Peg Perego John Deere Gator HPX Ride on Toy

2 Answers

No 1st or Reverse, but will go in 2nd

I have had a gator for my son for approximately 1 1/2 years. It has operated flawlessly. The other day my son was driving it and it was working fine. He stopped, said something to me, then when he went to drive some more, it no longer worked in 1st or Reverse, but would work in 2nd. The only wheel turning is the drivers side. I'm not sure if both turned before.  I have replaced the shifter switch assembly and it did not change the problem. This gator does not have a hi/lo switch.  Is there any other components I should check?

I just bought one for kids for christmas. Out of the box the switch was already installed. Only worked in 2nd gear. I pulled switch and it only hooks up one direction. Under dump bed theres a cover that lifts up and 2 wires goin to each wheel. The wires to the right wheel were unhooked. As soon as i hooked them up 1st and reverse started working. Dont know if this is the case for yours but worth a try.

    My husband was on the verge of a full blown nervous breakdown, and I read him this and BOOM- we have a full working Gator! Thank you! You saved Christmas! :)

You can try and flip the harness that connects to the shifter the other way. Sounds like it may be hooked up backward.

!st gear won't work


I would replace the shifter assembly. It seems to be a better upgrade with the switches built into the shifter itself. It also has the wiring with it.
As long as the battery seems to work and the motors are going in one of the speeds, then there is not much to the vehicle.
It is a specific Peg Perego Switch assembly.
Hope this helps

Goes in 1st and Reverse but not 2nd


Something you may want to check is to see if there is a "governor" for the 2nd gear. My 4 year old has a 4x4 similiar to this and the only two gears that worked were 1st & reverse until my husband had to unscrew a piece from the 2nd gear setting..check the manual or if you don't have one, look online through the manufacturers website. I hope this helps!

My son's gator will not go in reverse anymore.....When we first got it it did but as soon as we removed the screw for 2nd gear, it stopped....why


The problem is with the red forward/reverse switch. The two speed switch only works once the red forward contacts are engaged. I had the same problem several years ago. Replace the red switch and you are good to go.
