Question about Peg Perego John Deere Gator HPX Ride on Toy

1 Answer

My son's gator stopped working suddenly. Fully charged battery, and I have switched the red and blue wires under the pedal like suggested in other threads on this board. Still nothing; how do I know if it is the pedal switch or something else?

First of all check for at least 12 volts from the battery and the charger, you can test this using a multimeter

SOURCE: i bought a gator last christmas 4 my son and only

most likely it is the shifter switch. 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 the battery charger should have a led light that will glow green at full charge, and yellow if not charged all of the way.

It is most likely the Gearbox, it is easy to find and easy to replace. It is right under the gear shifter and is a "harness" with wires that will need replaced, if you call the tech support for Peg Perego they are very helpful and will get you on the right track. Your old battery is most likely fine, but keep it until you fix the gearbox switch. Afterward (when gator is again operational) I would imagine you could return the new battery since you really should not need it.

My son has a seven year old gator. It has 12 volts,has power at the pedal, and shifter . it has new rear motors and battery, will not go,do i replace the pedal switch and shifter?


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

Peg Perego John Deere Gator not working at all


It sounds like you need a pedal switch or it has a loose connection in the wires. It is a specific Peg Perego Switch that will fit under the foot pedal. I have a gator that was doing the same thing so i replaced the shifter switches and the foot pedal switch, but I bet you could start with just the foot pedal switch.
I bought mine at this website http://www.shopjandl.com/kids---baby-ride-on-toys-peg-perego.html but you could also call them as well.
Hope this helps
