Please refer to the cars user manual for the time to charge they normally range between 4 and 8 hours and its first charge is vital as the first charge conditions the battery for its life cycle.

Did The Charger Get Warm Whilst Charging?

Are Certain Parts Of The Ride On Toy Working But Not Others?

 If you are seeing that certain parts of the kids ride on toy are working but other aspects are not working it’s normally that a wire has come loose somewhere – please check all the connections under the car, motors, and in the battery box. 

The Lights and sounds work but the ride on toy motors are not getting any power. Do you hear a clicking sound from the wheels?

–   So a clicking sound from the motor can be one of two things whether the car has been overloaded either with weight or terrain or one of the wires to the motors have come loose and not getting a connection – If you think it’s been overloaded allow the motors to cool down and come back to it. If it’s definitely not overloading then you need to check all motor connections.

 These toys have a maximum weight limit they can carry and may stop operating if this is passed. Other conditions that may hinder the cars ability are long thick grass, too steep an incline, sand etc. Any combination of these conditions may overload the vehicle. The best surface to use these vehicles is a flat clear tarmacked area

  • The fuse may need replacing, this can be checked with a multi-meter and is usually housed in a small box, attached to the lead that goes from the battery to the main control box.
