If you have a volt meter, switch the volt meter to 12v, locate the motor in the back wheels and if you can see where the wires connect to the motor touch the terminals of the volt meter to the two connections and turn on the power wheels press the power pedal and see if you get a reading of 12v. If you can't touch the wire or where the wire connects try disconnecting the wires and testing it that way. If you have 12v at the motor then it seems the motor is shot. There should be two motors one fit each wheel and its unlikely that they would both go. If you don't have power at the motor try following the wires to the pedal and also the forward reverse switch. Test these in a similar fashion. Hope that helps

My grandaughter's Fisher Price Barbie jeep is running slow. I have charged the battery twice and it doesn't make a difference. How can I check to make sure it isn't a bad charger before

Test the charger with a ohm meter, or you could take the vehicle to a Power Wheels service station, they can test the battery for you to see if it is good.

You can find your closest service center here:

Have the STX Vipor electric car. Fully charged but won't go, just hear clicking noise.

If this was a real car this could be anything from anti-theft to a blown battery. Being as its a power wheels it would probably be the battery is ruined because it was charged sitting on concrete bare. Which will quickly destroy a battery. You may have to buy a new battery. The only other thing I can think of to check is if the motor is ruined powering the wheels. Which will be a much more expensive fix. Hope this helps:)

After a year in storage, jeep won't work.

the radio runs off of a seperate battery source, so that wouldn't have any effect on this, i would first of all check the battery and charger with a multimeter and make sure that they are showing the correct voltage, if its a 12v battery make sure that they are showing at least 12 volts, if its a 6v battery make sure that its showing at least 6v

We have a Barbie jeep and other power wheels vehicles. They all seem to be having the same problem - they won't run! We bought a new battery and one of the cars will run for a short time. The others...

Most auto parts store carry a load meter that will check the health of the battery. Go through the jeep first however and check that all connections are good and no wires are touching each other which would cause a dead short and drain batteries. That includes the speed pedal.
