My gator will only go in high speed forward, and not reverse or low speed.
If I put it in low gear, and move the left wheel slightly forward, both wheels will engage and operate normally for several cycles. But then, it stops working again, where you have to slightly move that left wheel to get it going again.
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.

I'm thinking its probably a bad or disconnected motor, do both of the rear wheels spin when its working? and when it stops working do you hear a click noise? you can order a new motor here www.powerwheelsoutlet.com or you can contact me over the phone here and i can walk you through more troubleshooting
Do you hear a click when it stops working? if you do its the thermal switch tripping, this would probably indicate a bad motor, lift up the rear end of the vehicle and check to make sure that both wheels are spinning in all of the gears
did you remove the high speed lockout? Its red and its on the shifter itself and c an be removed with a screwdriver, otherwise it sounds like one of the motors might be bad, you'll have to remove the dump box to test this, just disconnect one motor and try the gears, then reconnect it then disconnect the other motor then test the gears, this should tell you which motor is bad

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
