Question about Peg Perego Santa Fe Express Ride On Train

1 Answer

A peg perego 6v 4.2A battery came with the second hand peg perego choo choo express train ride on set I bought but after charging it the train does not work (charger light went green so charger is ok).. After taking off the green cover of the top of the 6v battery I can see that one of the two wires has snapped off from the middle terminal/plate (and it looks slightly rusting too) and I do not know how to fix it - maybe it's a simple solder job for someone? but I have neither the equipment nor knowledge. what can I do, can I get a replacement of these leads/cables? I can see plenty of 6v batteries for sale but none come with these leads and I think that these may be all I need to replace as opposed to a whole battery anyway? thanks for your help. granny p

  • Yes you can. You have to disassemble the tractor to expose the motor. When the motor is exposed you will take a couple jumper wires and bypass the pedal switch by going from the positive on the battery to the positive on the motor and the negative on the battery to the negative on the motor. Have someone lift the rear end up just enough to get the wheels off the ground and let them free spin. If when the battery is fully connected to the motor the wheel starts spinning the motor is good. If not then the motor is bad. Make sure to use the actual tractor battery only. Also make sure the battery is fully charged so you get a good diagnose on the motor. If you are unsure if the battery is charged then use a multi meter to check the voltage of the battery and make sure it reads 6volts before going to test the motor.

  • Here are a couple links to help you get to the motor.
