Question about Toys

1 Answer

Just bought a Jeep Hurricane Power Wheels for my daughter. I thought it was kind of funny that when the shiter was i the down position the vehicle went forward and when the shifter was in the forward position it went into reverse. At this time I srtill had the low speed screw installed. My duaghter finally got used to steering and the low speed and I removed the low spoeed screw. Now the vehicle has one low speed with the shiter in the down position and two reverse speeds in the two forward shifter positions???? Please help. it almost seems as if the wirig is backwards??

Can you use a 12 volt car battery for a f-150 power wheels?

The first thing you need to know if modifying your vehicle will void the warranty. Just a disclaimer.

It is NOT recommended to use a car battery in a kids ride on vehicle. It could work and function, but what it really comes down to is the safety for you and your children so it is not recommended. It is unsafe to use any kind of unsealed wet acid battery for a ride on toy for your children. The batteries that need to be bought are of the SEALED LEAD ACID kind, again, this is for the safety of the children and though there may be a lot of reasons for wanting a car battery in the vehicle is is just not safe enough.

Power Wheels recommends using the 12V gray battery that is designed for the vehicle, it can be seen here:
If you decide against buying the Power Wheels battery please do your research and buy a safe battery for the vehicle. You can find a lot of information on modifying these ride on toys at they have lots of information, and will make sure the mods you do are safe for the children as well.
Thank you,

Emergency brake

I recently bought a 92 Honda Acord LX...146000Miles on it. I recently took of the back wheels to check the brakes. My wife thought the rear brakes were dragging since when she takes her foot off the accelerator the car slows down, unlike our Town & Country which has over drive. The Honda has a 4 sp auto and it feels like it is shifting ok but, we wonder if it ever gets to 4th which I assume is OD...or is it? It shifts rather positive,which is OK with slipping into gear for smoother shifting. I digress.
What I really want to know is what kind of set-up does the Honda have as far as the emergency brake goes.....cables or something else? I found no cables going to the rear wheels....or else the are hidden real good. We are afraid to use the emergency brake since another used car we bought once had rusted cables and we locked up the rear wheels and couldn't release them. I had to tear it all down and install new cables.
Sorry, as you can see, I ramble. All I want to know is does the car have cables or some other means for the emergency brake? Thanx

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.

I charge the barbie 12 volt jeep and get nothing. i also got two 6 volt batteries and wired them in series bypassing the original batteries but still nothing,are these fused?

I know you are technically strong to do the bypassing part. But assumption is to do with fuse.

Your Power Wheels® 12 volt battery is equipped with a built-in thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is
a self-resetting safety device which automatically "trips" and shuts down operation of the vehicle if the vehicle is overloaded or the driving conditions too severe. Once a fuse has "tripped", remove your foot from the pedal and wait approximately 25 seconds before operating the vehicle again. To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs, avoid severe driving conditions.

better call up Fisher price, and lay back with free mind.

Daughter has a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with the 4.7 SHO, her check engine came on, she took it to a local parts store and they hooked it up to a computoer and it showed code P1391, since we have...

this code stands for intermittent loss of camshaft or crankshaft position sensor signal, usually not in all cases its the crankshaft sensor. The other fixes are wiring and the computer, but like I said it is usually the sensor. Good Luck Tim

How do I switch from low to high speed on a Jeep Hurricane. Shifter won't go into forward slot.

I have NO CLUE but it bet its a simple piece of Chinese plastic. Look down at the shifter, USE screw driver to remove shifter, remove Chinese plastic blocking the shifter from being pushed into HIGH by young child. Reattach shifter, push shifter forward to HIGH.

couple things apply brake when shifting out of non running vehicle or you should be able to with key still on the on position with engine not running apply brake shift down to nuetral then start vehicle up with applied brake shift into park

if this isnt working then inside key cylinder the k.c. pin that locks the column is broke or wore down you should be able to at least get the blazer into neutral to shift out back to park

under neith the blazer there is a saftey shift module that if this is worn it wont let you shift or you can shift with dead engine and no brake applied this might need to be replaced by tranny tech

the other way to unshift the shiter is have a buddy with you this is a little finness in what i say next
chock the wheels from rolling on a hill disengage the saftey brake now start pushing on the vehicle with engine off back and forth this disengages the 4x4 locked hubs gotta roll back a little but be sure not to let vehicle run over buddy

these are just a couple things off the top of my head that i can think of since im not actually there to see in person i hope this helped
