1.Test the electric motor in the car by clipping the two wires.
2.Have a good 9volt battery to test with
3. Strip both of the wire ends.
4.Wrap one wire around the positive terminal of the battery and wrap the other end around the negative end of the battery.


6.If motor does spin. Barely apply pressure the turning motor with your hand. If it stops turning or has a not torque at all the motor is bad.Please Replace

7.If it motor is good solder the wires back into the circuit.
8.Make sure all gears turn with the the motor and look closely to see if one is not striped. If one is Please Replace.

To replace parts tou will have to go back to the manufacturer.
You didnt specify what type of car this was. For example a Power Wheels, Radio Remote control,or just a switched toy car that you turn on and place on the floor.

If it is a large toy do the same test procedure but with a larger battery. If it is a Power Wheels I would prefer a car battery.

The elecric motor is the only thing that would make your 36 ford behave in this manner. I am sure this what your problem. I just gave you these test procedures so you can be sure yourself.

Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums

Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.

Push button 4wd not working

It sounds like someone has changed into 4wd at speed and broken the internals of the system. Check the relays and fuses first but it sounds more serious than that. If it drives in 2wd put it in reverse an circle listen for any undue noises.
