Do not place used batteries in your regular trash. Instead, return the battery to a federal or state approved lead-acid battery recycler. This may be a Power Wheels® Authorized Service Center or a local retailer of automotive batteries.
Traction bands have been designed for and are included for use on specific single seat Jeep models to improve traction. The unauthorized use of traction bands on other Power Wheels® vehicles will void the product worranty and may pose both safety and reliability issues including decreased motor and/or gearbox life.
Battery life will vary depending on how you follow the Charging and Battery Care Instructions. It's also affected by the total number of hours the batteries are used. Average battery life is one to three years.

The designated wall bracket has a notch on it.This notch ensures the motor only works when attached to the bracket.All other brackets are flat.

The very first time you use Car Maker, you need to insert 2 wax sticks. Car Maker comes pre-loaded with 1 wax stick. The second stick you insert is not meant to fit completely inside the machine – it will protrude through the top. After you have made your very first car, only 1 additional wax stick needs to be inserted every time. Please note that ALL wax sticks must be inserted with the point side down.
DO NOT start injecting wax until Car Maker prompts you to “Please pull down handle.” If you start the injection before this, it can cause blockage in the mold. Blockage can be cleared using the included tool (see CLEANING section in the instruction sheet).
If you cannot press the handle down, have an adult unplug the machine, wait ten seconds and then plug it back in to reset. Car Maker will automatically go into the cooling cycle. Do not unplug during this time. After you hear “Cooling Complete” and the door opens, try the following:
• Check the mold for blockage. See CLEANING section in the instruction sheet.
• Look into the front window on the machine. Ensure that there is a wax stick in the heating chamber and that the wax stick above it is properly aligned.
If you hear “Error,” ask an adult to unplug Car Maker from the wall, wait ten seconds and then plug it back in to reset. Car Maker may automatically go into the cooling cycle. Do not unplug during this time. If you continue to hear “Error” after multiple resets, this may be an indication of a mechanical problem with the door switch; please contact Consumer Services via service.mattel.com for assistance.
