Peg Perego 800 Twin ATV - Only runs for 10 - 15 minutes at a time

Bought this 24 volt ATV for my 5 year old son. He rode it a few times and it worked fine. I charge the battery after each use for a minimum of 12 hours. Now when he rides it only runs for 10 - 15 minutes and it seems like the battery needs to be charged. I had him try it again the next day, but I did not charge the battery. Again it ran for 10 - 15 minutes. It seems to me that it is not the battery but some sort of electrical or connection problem. I have went an email to Peg Perego and have responded to their questions. Still waiting for a response.

The polaris 800's have a known issue with the thermal switches over heating, then they cut out after 10 minutes then after you wait about 5 minutes they come back on. Peg perego has a replacement kit with contains a new circuit board, thermals switches and two new 350 watt motors, I personally have replaced about 15 of them, its a pretty simple process

I have a Craftsman mulcher model 315.370270. The green recharge light goes on but the battery charge level stays in the red. Do I need a new battery and if so where do I buy it?


I guess you've solved this by now, sounds like you need new batteries if the mower lacks power after trying to recharge. There are two sealed lead acid 12-volt batteries connected together on this mower to provide the 24 volts of power. These are the same batteries that are commonly used on rechargeable power wheelchairs and scooters. So you could find them at a Durable Medical Equipment company. The last two times I bought them, I got them from a DME company where I used to work. I also looked into buying them over the internet. Just make sure the replacement batteries are the same size and specs. You could burn out your on-board charger by continuing to charge batteries that are shot. I did this a few years ago with my 315.370270. Since then I have been charging the batteries with my portable Craftsman charger. The 12-volt batteries last about 3-5 years. I have had my mulcher since 1995 and have replaced the batteries about four times. This is the best mower I've ever owned. I'm going to retire it this year, if you're interested in it for spare parts.

I had my wheel chair in storage for about an year, I have attempted to charge but when I disconnect the joy stick blinks yellow for low battery...How do I determine if both batteries are bad? If so do I...


Hi.Sounds like your batteries have sulphated plates, this happens when they sit for too long without being used. Your machine is a 24 volt system, so it needs both batteries to be working.You might be able to get a bit more life out of the batteries.
Try removing both batteries from the machine and connecting a light bulb across each battery and discharging them until they are flat.
Then using a 12 volt charger, ( not the charger for the machine, which is a 24 volt charger ), charge the 2 batteries in parallel. Sometimes it helps to charge them up the wrong way for a few hours, then discharge them again with the light bulbs. After this charge them again in parallel with the 12 volt charger, this time the correct polarity, a leave on charge for 12 hours.
You might have to repeat the charge, discharge cycle a few times.
The batteries will accept a charge after a bit of this, but they might not be as good as new batteries.
If you are unsure how to do this, get some help from someone who can do the work safely.
Good luck. Neil.

My sons 800 sportsman twin runs for a few minutes and stops. after waiting for a bit it runs again and starts all aover again


The Peg Perego sportsman twin 800's are overheating the protection module. After it cools, it works again. They know about the problem and admitted it. Under warranty they just shipped me a new poly switch, a new mainboard and TWO new motors WITH gearboxes for free. (Mines 6 months old). Working on installing the parts now. It is NOT a battery problem but something to do with the 24 volt motors overloading the electrical system.
