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!

SOURCE: gator will not go in reverse or low gear only high

I would check to see if both wheels are spinning in high.
If only one spins, then it may have a loose connection on one of the motors.
You can also get the specific peg perego gator switches from the guys at
http://www.shopjandl.com/kids---baby-ride-on-toys-peg-perego.html
They also have a phone number that you can call them to explain the problem with the vehicle, they seem to know a lot about them.
Hope this helps.

Gator wont go


No, just the shifter. Just to check you can exchange the red and blue wires under the pedal(just for a second or so, do not do this permanently) to see if you get power to the wheels, if so then yes it is Definitely only the shifter, but I am still pretty sure it is just the shifter. you can also call Peg Perego Tech support which is excellent and they can help you too 1800-728-2108 and parts can be priced and found at www.mypegperegoparts.com

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.

My son's gator will not go in reverse anymore.....When we first got it it did but as soon as we removed the screw for 2nd gear, it stopped....why


The problem is with the red forward/reverse switch. The two speed switch only works once the red forward contacts are engaged. I had the same problem several years ago. Replace the red switch and you are good to go.

Sounds like the gears are stripped. If a bunch of teeth are missing, only the high speed gear will spin the gears fast enough to move the gator forward. I just bought a used one and found it pretty easy to tear apart and diagnose as similar issue. The gear boxes, located inboard of each wheel contain plastic gears and strip relatively easy if the shifter is moved , during motion from forward to reverse.

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
