Alterations could cause a fire resulting in serious injury and could also ruin the electrical system.

-Use of the wrong type battery or charger could cause a fire or explosion resulting in serious injury.

-Use of Power Wheels® components in products other than Power Wheels® vehicles could cause overheating, fire or explosion.

Never allow children to charge the battery.

CAUTION

Use the charger in dry locations only.

About Thermal Fuses

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, do not overload the vehicle by exceeding the 130 lb. (59 kg) maximum weight capacity or by towing anything behind the vehicle. Avoid severe driving conditions, such as driving up slopes or running into fixed objects, which can cause the wheels to stop spinning while power is still being supplied to

the motors and make sure your child stops the vehicle before switching direction.

If a thermal fuse in a battery continually trips under normal driving conditions, please contact your local Power Wheels® Authorized Service Center. For the location of the Authorized Service Center nearest to you, visit us on-line at www.powerwheels.com,

or call 1-800-348-0751.

Important Notes

Your new battery must be charged for at least 18 hours before you use it in your vehicle for the first time.

We recommend that you start charging your battery before beginning assembly of your new vehicle.

The battery must be upright while charging.

The charger is not a toy.

Do not short circuit the battery.

You do not need to remove the battery from your vehicle to recharge it.

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 charge the battery on a surface (such as a kitchen counter top) which could be damaged by the acid contained inside the battery. Take precautions to protect the surface on which you charge your battery.

Use only a Power Wheels® 12 volt charger with "12 V" connector (120 VAC, 60 Hz, with an output of 12 VDC) to charge your Power Wheels® 12 volt battery.

Adults Note: Regularly examine the charger for damage to the cord, plug, housing or other parts that may result in the risk of fire, electric shock or injury. In the event of any damage, do not use the charger until the damage has been properly repaired. Please call 1-800-348-0751.

If your battery is old and will not accept a charge, do not leave it in the vehicle. Always remove a dead battery from the vehicle.
