  • Vehicle does not charge
  • Vehicle is a lot slower than usual
  • Vehicle battery does not last long
  • Vehicle turns on but does not move
  • Vehicle keeps restarting
  • Vehicle does not turn on

How to troubleshoot a faulty battery:

  • Make sure the item has been charged for 8-10 hours.
  • Try to turn the car on, if this item does not turn on, check if the battery is connected properly.
  • If the car is turning on but will not move forward or backwards, check the voltage on the music display screen, this number should never be lower than 2 of the total voltage (example a 10-volt reading on display screen for a 12-volt model)
  • Fully charge the vehicle and use a multimeter to check the voltage of the battery. The voltage should never be lower than the total voltage.

Common symptoms of a faulty receiver/main circuit board are:

  • Vehicle drives but cuts out intermittently
  • Vehicle does not charge
  • Vehicle is a lot slower than usual
  • Vehicle battery does not last long
  • Vehicle turns on but does not move
  • Vehicle keeps restarting
  • Vehicle does not turn on

Depending on the symptoms above, here are a few ways you can troubleshoot a faulty receiver/main circuit board:

  • Test the car with the remote control first.
  • Check the battery voltage to confirm the battery is in good condition.
  • Check all clips/connectors are plugged into the receiver/main circuit board and that no wires are handed out.
  • If the car is not turning left or right first check the bolt on the steering rod, then check the steering motor is connected properly, if both checks ass then the chances are, the receiver/main circuit board is faulty.

Common symptoms of a faulty parental remote control are:

  • Car does not pair with the parental remote control.
  • There are no lights on the remote control, even after changing the batteries.
  • The lights will not go stable and continuously flash even after following the correct pairing procedure.
  • Car works with pedal but not remote

Depending on the symptoms above, here are a few ways you can troubleshoot a faulty parental remote control:

  • Try to pair the remote with the car.
  • Try new batteries. Make sure the new batteries are brand new and are the same brand.
  • Test the vehicle with the pedal, if it works with the pedal, the most likely fault is with the parental remote control.

Common symptoms of a faulty motor(s) are:

  • Clunking or grinding noise when driving
  • Wheels are going in the wrong direction
  • One wheel is going forward & the others backward
  • The item is turning on and fully charged, but not moving

Depending on the symptoms above, here are a few ways you can troubleshoot a faulty motor:

  • First, check both wires and soldered on in the motor, as sometimes these may snap off.
  • If the wires are connected, then try to listen if the motor is making a grinding or clunking noise. If so, the motor is faulty and will require replacement.
  • A good way to test if one of the motors is faulty is to disconnect one of the motors at a time and try to drive the car with just the other motor(s) connected. By doing this, we can isolate the faulty motor(s).
  • If one wheel is going forward and the other wheel going backwards, the manufacturers have connected the wires on the motor the wrong way around and this can be easily fixed by swapping the wires in the plug and this will resolve the issue.
  • If both motors are spinning the wrong way around, this means the left motor has been put on the right and the right on the left. Please swap them around and the issue will be resolved.

Common symptoms of a faulty power switch/ignition barrel are:

  • Car does not turn on
  • Only the power switch light up
  • You need to hold down the power button for it to stay on

  • The lights will not come on (red light on the switch) when pressing it down
  • The button will not go into the ON position
  • The button will not stay in ON position
  • If you see any of the above, the power switch will need to be replaced.
  • The wires have snapped off and will need to be re-soldered. You can check this by removing the power switch/ignition switch or going into the dashboard to check the wires have not been damaged/dislodged.
  • The key barrel is damaged, this will be visible and if this is the case, the whole barrel will need to be replaced.

Common symptoms of a faulty media player are:

  • There is no sound coming from the vehicle
  • There is no power to the media player
  • Media player does not work
  • Buttons do not work on media player

Depending on the symptoms above, here are a few ways you can troubleshoot a faulty media player:

  • If the issue is with no sound coming out of the speakers, firstly check to see if there is power to the LCD. If there is power, then, the speaker wire may be disconnected.
  • If there is no power to the LCD at all, firstly make sure the USB port is not corroded and then check the wires behind (same as speaker) the media player is connected properly. If all wires are connected, then you need to replace the music display.
