    Thanks. I'm not sure that is the answer I need. I should have put more info in my question (duh). We've had the peg perego for a couple of years and it ran fine in ALL gears (1, 2 and R). Now all of a sudden it will only run in R. If we shift it into 1 or 2 nothing happens. ????Help, thanks! :)

speeds. ATTENTION: When the vehicle is first
removed from the packing, it only runs in first
gear (1) and reverse (R). To use the second gear
(2), proceed as follows:

chassis, preventing the gearshift lever from
moving down to the second gear. 1-2-R: The
second gear unit is completely screwed into
the chassis, and the gearshift lever can be

Hello, I purchased this Peg Perego Cub Cadet Tractor and trailer almost 2 years ago and have run across a problem. One day it just stopped running. We charged it up as we usually do when the battery...

yes, very common. probably the thermal breaker under the shifter. you can replace it with a 40 amp fuse or bypass it. dont worry its safe to bypass b/c there is a 30 amp fuse on the battery also.
good luck!

!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

I have a John Deere Ride on Toy stuck in reverse

Are the actual shifter levers not engaging or are the switches not clicking?
These Peg Perego Parts are available at, but I would check to make sure if it is the switches specifically or the levers under the shifter.
It is simple to check the shifter by taking the 2 screws out that hold the shifter in.
Hope this helps.
Let me know what you find.

I would check and make sure the wiring on the foot pedal is on.
The Peg perego polaris models will sometimes get corrosion on the red wire.
I called the guys at this website and they said to check the red connection. sure enough the connector was barely hanging on.
Hope this helps
