WHAT IS THIS?

This is a easy-to-install module that piggybacks on the factory wiring and adds the ability to use a 12v, 18v or 24v battery source (24v will double the speed of 12v cars). There are two adjustments to set the top speed and acceleration rate that will drastically improve the cars performance and speed, keep motors cooler, less gearbox strain and improve rider comfort. The factory controls remain the same (pedal throttle, high/low/half-speed reverse).

POWER WHEELS PROBLEMS FROM THE FACTORY:

  • Jerky on/off throttle constantly gives riders whiplash
  • Instant-on power over heat the motors and spins wheels which loudly grinds them down and destroys them over time which makes the car slower (cause spinnin' aint winnin')
  • Top speeds which might be too fast for some riders and/or environments
  • A hard brake which locks up the wheels and loudly destroys the wheels over time
  • No remote brake control to stop the car

The factory setup is bad for every part in the car (except the wire) especially at 24v! The on/off throttle leads to massive 100+ amp spikes during start up which reduces runtime, causes the motors to overheat and strains the gearboxes. When the motors are briefly drawing 1,000w each during start up they are outputting several hundred watts in excess heat! This burns the brushes and raises motor temperature dramatically which can lead to failure from internal melt down. The instant power breaks wheel traction and makes the car louder and harder to control and can make technical/slow driving much harder.

HOW THIS MODULE RESOLVES THESE PROBLEMS:

The module has two turn dials which adjust the top speed (0-100% of battery power) and acceleration rate (1-5 seconds). This may be a one-time adjustment or it can be changed constantly. Mild settings will completely eliminate start up whiplash and make the experience much more enjoyable and controllable. Finally the optional remote brake switch will activate the brake and sound a constant tone.

This "EASY ESC" vs. FULL ESC SYSTEMS:

 The solution to the factory on/off throttle problem has always been the use of an variable speed ESC (electric speed controller). But, the downside to a full ESC system is it's an overhaul and is some what involved to add a variable throttle ESC system to a car. This kit is an excellent middle ground between the extremely bad factory setup and the full featured ESC system and is basically still utilizes the factory on/off throttle but with an adjustable soft start and a soft automatic brake. This kit is extremely simple to install and offers good but relatively simple control over the car compared to traditional/full ESC systems that have a truly variable throttle and a separate brake pedal. Overall this "Easy ESC" setup is extremely easy to install and is good for open areas/cruising while the full ESC kits are a bit more involved to install but will provide much more advanced control for a variety of driving conditions, especially slow/technical terrain.

WHAT ELSE YOU WILL NEED:

Batter(ies)

The most common battery capacity is 12AH (amp hour) which typically provides about 45m of run time (this can vary widely based on usage). For more run time 18AH typically  provides about 60m of run time. Make sure you have room for the batteries! 12AH batteries are 6x4x4” each and weigh 9 pounds each.18AH batteries are 7x3x6.5” each and weigh 12 pounds each.

You can reuse the Power Wheels factory battery but this will require cutting of the factory harness to connect it to the module. If you change the factory motors to 775 size it is possible to trip the internal fuse within the factory battery which will cause the car to periodically stop. To remedy this you will need to turn down the speed/acceleration or purchase after market batteries. The replacement battery must be a "SLA" (sealed lead acid) and not a wet/serviceable (lawn mower) battery which could leak acid. 

Motors/Gearboxes

The first gear is the least likely gear to fail in the gearbox, by far. As a result the stock gearboxes are the best option to use.

In most cases with average usage, gear breakage is rare. If you do break gears, factory replacements are widely available for relatively inexpensive prices. In our experience the most common reason for broken gears is significant changes in momentum such as a sudden significant changes in terrain such as dropping off a ledge, significant ruts or bumps, overloading or adding rear rubber traction.

The stock motors (550 size) are OK to use in most cases. 775s run cooler than the stock 550s but as long as the stock motors do not see more than average usage they likely will not overheat but this will vary from case to case. To keep the motors cool we recommend a 3-4 second acceleration rate. If you are concerned about motor temperature a good investment is a IR temperature gun to monitor the motor temperature. Critical internal temperature is about 160*F so maximum external temperature should not exceed ~140*F.

BEFORE YOU BUY:

Determine where the parts will go. The module is 6x5x2” and should be stored in a dry area such as under the seat. The battery size depends on the capacity you choose. You can re-use the factory battery as long as you do not make any other changes such as larger 775 motors which will likely trip the factory battery's internal fuse. The most common capacity 12v replacement battery is 12AH (the factory battery has 9.5AH capacity) but for more run time you could choose 18AH. 12AH batteries are 6x4x4” each, weigh 9 pounds each and last 45 minutes or longer depending on usage. 18AH batteries are 7x3x6.5” each, weigh 12 pounds each and last 60 minutes or longer depending on usage. The type of battery should be SLA (sealed lead acid) not a wet/serviceable battery which can leak acid.

INSTALL OVERVIEW:

Installation typically takes 30-60 minutes. The only required tool is a phillips driver. Recommended tools are a drill (11mm or 7/16" for the resettable fuse, 16mm or 5/8" for the charge port), crimper/stripper to custom cut and crimp the 4 install wires (but leaving the wires as they ship and coiling any loose wire is OK), long phillips driver and a flat head driver to help car disassembly. The steps in short are: disconnect the battery, mount the module in a dry protected area and leave the screw terminals accessible. Disassemble the factory pedal assembly to expose the harness below the pedal and disconnect it from the pedal. Run the heavy red and orange wires from the module to the pedal and connect them to the harness and match the wire colors. Zip tie these module wires to the factory wires close to where they connect to keep the union intact. Run the light gauge red and black wires to the pedal and connect them to the middle terminal and the terminal furthest from the middle terminal (this is critical, if the center and closer terminal are used the car will be turned on when the pedal is not pressed). Drill a hole for the charge port (11mm or 7/16"), remove the charge port nut, insert the charge port wires through the hole, slide the nut around the wires and tighten the nut. Then insert the terminals into the attached terminal housing but be careful to match the polarity with the white 2-wire terminal on the module! Finally run the heavy red and black wires to the batter(ies), connect them (a tiny spark/snap during battery connection is normal!) and test the cars operation (knob settings and drive direction) with the wheels off the ground.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

(Q) Can I use this kit with a brand other than Power Wheels?
 (A) Yes. You can install the kit on any (non circuit board) electric ride-on that was 12-24 volts from the factory but the install procedure may be different – please contact us for non Power Wheels or Peg Perego compatibility questions.
