Question about Peg Perego John Deere Turf Tractor

1 Answer

How should I connect the wires to the motors? Our Peg Perego John Deere tractor lost its ability to go. I saw voltages on the motor wires when the wires were disconnected from the motors, but no voltage when connected. I replaced one of the motors and it started working. However, I may have mixed some of the motor connections when hooking it back up after replacing the motor. Now, when in 1st gear, the (new motor for the) right wheel spins fast and the left doesn't spin. When in 2nd gear, they both spin, but the right is fast and the left is slow. I may have wired it incorrectly, or I may need to replace the left motor as well. I believe the colors are red, white, black, and blue. How should they be connected to the motors for proper operation? If it's easier to describe without colors, what should the voltages be at the motors when in 1st and 2nd gear for proper operation? Thanks.

White and black on one motor and red and blue on the other motor you can change which way the wheel spins by swapping the two wires around on the motor

SOURCE: do I need to replace all tires on peg perego john deere

On these, only the 2 rear wheels are the gear wheels. You will just need to replace the tires on those with the rubber ones if you choose to go that way.  Good luck!

SOURCE: my sons peg perego john deere jeep only sets off

I would get the Peg Perego Gator Shifter Assembly from
Make sure the wires are secure on both motors in the back.
One time I had the same problem and I had loose wires on the motor, but I ended up replacing the switch assembly later because it would only work in 1st gear.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: We just replaced the battery and it worked fine

Use a meter to confirm whether the battery is still working. The meter should read around 12-13 VDC if the battery is good. The 12 Volt Peg Perego battery is made with 2 6 volt batteries connected in series. Maybe the connection broke when the battery fell out. Check the connection and also check with a meter if either battery is pumping out 6 volts.

Can i put a 12 volt lawn tractor battery in the tractor

Wiring could be an issue when upgrading batteries. Also, if you manage to properly connect a larger voltage battery, you may (probably will) overheat and destroy the motors.
