Question about Dorel Toys

1 Answer

My granddaughter has the pink corvette made by Dorel. She was riding it one day, the car seemed to be going a little slower. The next day she tried to ride it and it would not do anything. We tried to charge the battery and the car would still do nothing. I have checked on the price of a new battery and because of the expense, I can't risk it not being the problem. Can you give me any suggestions, or is there a problem with these cars. The car was very expensive to begin with and don't feel we have nearly used it enough. I am very dissappointed in the product at this point. If you can provide a battery for $50.00, I would consider trying it. Thanks for any help. Lorraine Golden

Hello Lorrraine. Have you tried the charge then discharge regime. You charge it for a minimum of 12 hours then discharge it using a lamp and wire or similar but NOT the car (As this does not discharge it completely) Do this 3 times and it should sort out your problem. If it doesn't then it is the car wiring.

When i was driving my 1996 corvette, all of a sudden out of no where it started to shake a little bit like if it was running out of gas or something. I made it home and parked it. next day I went to start...


Get it scanned at Advanced Auto and see what comes up. How old is gas? When was the last time you ran the car? Perhaps your fuel pump, filter? Fuel pressure test at schrader valve ot the fuel lines near intake. If none of these, move on to electrical.

I have a yardman 46 in cut riding mower, it is leaving grass in the middle. I have put new blades, change the belts, put on a new tention spring, so what is my problem?


Well one of the spindle assemblies, could be running a little slower on one side then the other. But I would take a guess that you are trying to cut grass, way too fast for the mower. Try running a ground speed a liitle slower and see what happens.
Good Day.

I have 2009 Corvette, with battery problems as follows: IT seems when it sits for a week or so the battery goes dead. The dealer could not find anything wrong except for a bad battery, so they replaced it....


it has a draw, and they will be best equipped to find it. There are more modules on that car than the shuttle. it may take them a while, its warranty right?? its just a process of elimination, removing modules/ components from the "LOOP" until the draw goes away. good luck
