CONSUMER INFORMATION

  • Read this manual carefully for important safety information and operating instructions before using your vehicle. Keep these instructions for future reference, as they contain important information.
  • Age: 3-7 years. Weight Limit: 29,5 kg (65 lb).
  • Your new vehicle requires adult assembly. Please set aside at least 45 minutes for assembly.
  • The Parts pages and the Assembly instructions begin on page 6.
  • Use this vehicle ONLY outdoors. Most interior flooring can be damaged by riding this vehicle indoors. Fisher-Price® will not be responsible for damage to the floor if the vehicle is used indoors.
  • Use ONLY a Power Wheels® battery and charger with this product. Use of any other battery or charger will damage your vehicle.
  • Before first time use, you must charge the battery at least 18 hours (but no more than 30 hours). Please see the Battery Charging section for detailed instructions.
  • The battery charger is not a toy.
  • Your Power Wheels® 12 volt battery is equipped with a built-in thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a self-resetting safety device which automatically “trips” and shuts down operation of the vehicle if the vehicle is overloaded or the driving conditions too severe. Once a fuse has “tripped”, remove your foot from the pedal and wait approximately 25 seconds before operating the vehicle again. To avoid repeated automatic shut-downs, avoid severe driving conditions.
  • If a thermal fuse in a battery continually trips under normal driving conditions, please call us at 1-800-348-0751 (US and Canada) or 59-05-51-00 Ext. 5206 or 01-800-463-59-89 (México).
  • Power Wheels® maintains an independently owned and operated Authorized Service Center network in the United States and Canada.

To find the authorized service center near you, please visit us online at powerwheels.com or call 1-800-348-0751.

  • Keep children within safe riding areas. These areas must be:
    • away from swimming pools and other bodies of water to prevent drownings.
    • generally level to prevent tipovers.
    • away from steps, steep inclines, cars, roads and alleys.
  • Riding rules – Make sure children know and follow these rules for safe driving and riding.

BATTERY USE

Warning

DANGER/ POISON

DANGER

  • KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
  • DO NOT OPEN BATTERY.

Warning

WARNING

To prevent injury.

  • Do not make direct contact between battery terminals, as this can cause an explosion or fire.
  • Only adults should charge batteries.
  • Battery can fall out and injure a child if vehicle tips over. Always use battery retainer.
  • The battery must be handled by adults only. The battery is heavy and contains sulfuric acid (electrolyte). Dropping the battery could result in serious injury.

To prevent fire.

  • Do not operate the vehicle near flammable vapors (gasoline, paint thinner, acetone, etc.). The vehicle’s electrical switches and motors emit an internal spark which could cause an explosion or fire.
  • Examine the battery, charger and their connectors for excessive wear or damage each time you charge the battery. If damage or excessive wear is detected, do not use the charger or the battery until you have replaced the worn or damaged part.
  • Never modify the electrical system. Alterations could cause a fire.
  • Use only a Power Wheels® battery and charger. Other batteries or chargers could cause a fire or explosion.

BATTERY CHARGING

Adults note: Periodically examine this battery charger for damage to the cord, housing or other parts that may result in the risk of fire, electric shock or injury. If the battery charger is damaged, do not use it.

BATTERY CHARGING

  • Make sure you charge the battery for at least 18 hours using the enclosed Power Wheels® 12 volt charger before operating your vehicle for the first time. Charge the battery for at least 14 hours after each use of the vehicle.
  • You do not need to remove the battery from your vehicle to recharge it. Never charge the battery longer than 30 hours. Failure to follow these instructions may damage your battery and will void your warranty.
  • Before charging the battery, examine the battery case for cracks and other damage which may cause sulfuric acid (electrolyte) to leak during the charging process. If damage is detected, do not charge the battery or use it in your vehicle. Battery acid is very corrosive and can cause severe damage to surfaces it contacts.
  • Do not place the battery on a surface (such as kitchen counter tops) which could be damaged by the acid contained inside the battery. Take precautions to protect the surface on which you place your battery.
  • Charge the battery in a well ventilated area.
