Back wheels will always drag, first check the battery and charger and make sure that its putting out 12 volts

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Rear wheels-

Both wheels should spin in 2nd gear. Only one wheel may spin in 1st, but if you put a little pressure on the one wheel that spins it should make the other wheel start spinning.
But both wheels should spin in high gear at the same time.
Hope this helps. If there is more help you can also ask these guys at this website. http://www.shopjandl.com/ I get my parts from them and they seem to also work on them as well

Hello,

It sound to me that you have put the battery on the wrong way round.
Check that it is connected the correctly.

We replaced the rear wheels on the Gator and now it doesn't seem to have any traction or go as fast as before.


Take a tape measure and check if the back wheels are same diameter. They may have given you two different size wheels so one is too small. Some machines have bigger back wheels than front - so if they sent a front wheel and a back wheel (instead of two back wheels) one may be too small. If machine has any kind of suspension measure how long each side is to see if one side is stuck in the up position.

John Deere ride on gator HPX


Sounds like the field winding in the motor or the circuit in the accelerator pedal in going 'open' from the heat caused by the drag on the motor while a child is riding it the Gator. Tap on the 'gas' pedal assembly while running the Gator on stands so the wheels don't touch the ground and you're not trying to follow it around while the child is driving. If that's the problem it probably won't start once it stops during the test. The circuit will go 'open' completely. The motor , on the other hand, is a little harder to diagnose since you need the 'drag' cause by the Gator hauling a weight around to cause the system to get warm from current draw and 'open' up any intermittent faults. I can't remember how tough it is to get to the motor itself since the grandkids have all gotten too big to use it now, but.. if you could keep it on stands and block the 'gas' pedal so it will run, you cah try heating the motor assembly up with a hair dryer to simulate the heat caused during normal operation. If it stops.. most likely the motor windings are going open. Good luck

HELLO.. MY DAUGHTERS POLARIS TRAIL PRINCESS STALLS WHILE GOING UP HILLS. THE BATTERY SEEMS TO CUT OUT, AS THOUGH NOT ENOUGH POWER TO MAKE IT UP A SMALL INCLINE.. I CAN UNDERSTAND THIS, HOWEVER THE BIKE...


sounds like the foot pedal might be bad, when she is driving forward and lets off of the pedal do the rear wheels lock up or does it keep coasting?

My sons gator will not drive both back wheels all the time and sometimes not at all. Is this a switch or wiring problem. All connections seem to be clean and ok. Battery is charged and ready to go.


Have you checked the connections on the motors? I had the same problem because the wires came off of my gransons, but then I ended up replacing the switches.

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
