Question about Peg Perego John Deere Gator HPX Ride on Toy

1 Answer

I have an older model 12v John Deer Gator. Last night one of my Sons was driving it and moving the shifter back and forth from low to high to reverse and it stopped working. I’m not sure what the problem is. I have a new battery and I replaced the reverse switch last summer.

Probably a bad/disconnected shifter switch first of all check to make sure that the shifter switch is connected underneath

SOURCE: Want to locate the batteries for the John Deer 4X2 toy truck

You should be able to buy the battery at any auto parts store.
Call First!
There should be a trap door somewhere on the topside that will need to be unscrewed or pry-ed open.
Make sure you take the old battery to the auto parts store and have them test it to make sure that's the problem!
Often the metal drive and mechanisms on these toy trucks and cars gets rusted and is misdiagnosed as a battery problem in which case I would buy a couple of cans of WD40 lubricant or equivalent and spray on all the metal you can access then manually turn the wheels as much as possible!

SOURCE: replace parts on ride-on toys

The gearboxes for both hummers and peg perego gators are under the back seat.
If you hear a clicking noise It is definatly the gearbox on the gator. The hummer gearboxes sometimes come loose from the motors, so it may be as simple as tightning the motor gearbox.
Here is how you take the gearboxes out from the gator.
1. disconnect battery
2. take hinge pins out from the dump bed to access the green cover plate.
3. take a flathead screwdriver and pry around the plastic cover to expose the gearboxes.
4. take the rear wheels off and remove the rear axle.
remove the motor gearboxes (they are interchangeable)
5. install the new gearboxes making sure the wires are secure and the wheels are going in the correct direction.
6. put back together.
7. hook up battery and your good to go!

They have a toll-free number and are very smart when it comes to these peg perego ride on toys.

SOURCE: gator will only drive in reverse

I would replace the reverse switch as seen in here http://www.shopjandl.com/mepu0003.html and also the high low switch for this peg perego gator.
Sometimes the high/low switch will cause it to not go in reverse, so I would replace both switches in the shifter just to make sure.
They are really easy to replace. You can call these guys http://www.shopjandl.com/.
They know what they are talking about because they sell and repair them.

John Deer Gator only drives in low gear.


Sometimes the levers go bad in the shifter, but I would first check the shifter to make sure the switches are engaging. You should also check the wiring on the motors in the rear. Sometimes they come loose and if they are not making a good contact the gator will not go in proper speeds.
You can get great help at http://www.shopjandl.com/mepu0002.html.
They have a toll free number and are very helpfull because the repair them as well.

PEG PEREGO JOHN DEERE GATOR


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
