Where Is The Fuse On A Power Wheels?

You should be able to see the fuse in the top of the battery.


Are Power Wheels Batteries Deep Cycle?

Yes, they are.

Power Wheels were created for full discharge and are therefore considered to be deep cycle. With proper care these batteries can last up to 3 years.

You should charge a new battery a minimum of 18 hrs prior to first usage but never more than 24 hours.
