Peg Perego Gator Ride On Toy

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.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

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.

How do you change the gears


move the shifter switch up or down, you have to hold it down for reverse, and you have to remove the high speed lockout to get it into the high gear

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.

Peg perego gator wont work in forward but works in reverse


I would replace the high low switch for this peg perego gator.
The high low switch as seen here http://www.shopjandl.com/mepu0002.html will not allow it to go forward. The reverse switch will sometimes not work at all as well.
You can contact http://www.shopjandl.com/. They repair them and know how to figure out what is wrong.
I would also check the wiring on the motors. Sometimes the wiring comes loose and doesn't allow all the speeds to function properly.
hope this helps

PEG PEREGO JOHN DEERE GATOR


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
