SOURCE: Peg Perego Gator goes in reverse

Your switch/harness may need to be unplugged and turned around. Take off the shifter and you can see it there.

SOURCE: !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

SOURCE: peg perego gator wont work in forward but works in reverse

I would replace the high low switch for this peg perego gator.
The high low switch as seen here http://www.shopjandl.com/mepu0002.html will not allow it to go forward. The reverse switch will sometimes not work at all as well.
You can contact http://www.shopjandl.com/. They repair them and know how to figure out what is wrong.
I would also check the wiring on the motors. Sometimes the wiring comes loose and doesn't allow all the speeds to function properly.
hope this helps

SOURCE: peg perego gator grinding noise?

The Peg Perego Gearbox is the item that would make a clicking noise or grinding noise.
There are two different types.
One is a cross shape and another is a pentagon shape.
If you contact the folks at http://www.shopjandl.com/ they will be able to tell you what type you need. I get all my parts from them because they help me figure the problems out.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have the Peg Perego Gator and when running it

It might be the peg perego motor in the rear that is going bad, thus causing the fuse to trip. I had the same problem with my kids toy so I contacted a service center for Peg Perego at 1.801.655.0800
They were able to help me over the phone and get the right parts out to me.
hope this helps

Peg Perego John Deere Gator left wheel wont engage in 2nd gear, just replaced both motors and problem still exists. Any help?


disconnect the wires from one of the motors and check to see if it works in all gears, then do this with the other motor, then swap the wires from the left side to the right and vice versa, if both wheels spin in all the gears then you need a new shifter switch

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.

Problem #1:If you have taken the high speed safety device off the stick shift(small red plastic block screwed on below the yellow stick shift housing) then your high/low speed switch has gone out. There are two motors(one on each back wheel) that both have to come on when in high speed. Only one comes on for low speed. It is the switch under shifter that is not spring loaded. hi/lo switch #MEPU0002 available at www.tigerimports.net for $11.00 plus $2.00shipping That is where I got mine.
Problem #2: Sounds like you need hi/lo switch and possibly forward/reverse switch too. Before buying forward/reverse switch try putting a little grease on the white plastic assembly that engages the forward/reverse switch between the top piece and the piece that pushes down on top of the switch. Sometimes they just stick enough to stop switch from depressing. It is the switch under shifter that is spring loaded.Forward/reverse switch #MEPU0003 $11.00 plus $2.00 shipping @tigerimports.net
