no, but I installed all that from buying parts from radio shack and frys electronics. I spent about $60 extra and about 10 hours putting it all together. Wiring, drilling some holes, adding switches, mp3 player, mounted speaker. The lights I used were bright white LEDs and bright pink LEDs connected to switches and separate battery holders.

It was tough because our walmart put them out on pallets at 6PM on 11/24 instead of the advertised 10PM sale time. So, folks carried them around the store for FOUR HOURS to check out "legally" at 10PM....so they were long gone when we got there at 9pm that day. We checked throughout the night and purchased online at 4:30AM EST on 11-25-11 and did site to store. It's still on their site as "out of stock", so we'll see if they get it back in.

This was a limited edition for Wal-Mart only. It appears to be out-of-stock on WMT.com. Wal-Mart Stores received this too. You might check with your local Wal-Mart store to see if any are left in the store. Great bargain at $99.00, so they were sold quickly.

Yes one would think with two speeds it would go up to 5MPH which is why I purchased however the owner manual Page 7 clearly states the speed is 1.86-3.73 MPH.

Question

I can't get the car to start. I assembled it which seemed very simple. Made the three connections and charged it for the 15 hours.

I followed the directions to the "T" which again seemed pretty simple. But I can't get the car to start. My whole idea of opening it before Christmas was so my daughter could drive it on Christmas. Winston Customer Service is terrible you go through a call center and they call you back with no time frame.

Make sure the charger is out, the power switch is turned to ON and then press the pedal. Look at all connections and make sure they are all snapped in together. The hood and under the seat is all the connections needed. If all fails, you have a bad battery. No tellin how long these cars have been on the back shelves.

answer 2
The rear motors are reversed. The directions were incorrect. Green wire to green wire, orange to orange. If you don't switch the motors, the car will go reverse in forward, and vice versa. We had the same problem, thought maybe it was a faulty charger, bought another charger without any luck, then read through all of the product reviews here, where I found others seemed to have the same problem. Works great now, after 2 days of frustration.

I thought I had the same problem. I charged the car and when I turned it on and pressed the pedal nothing. But then I realized it had to be unplugged from the charger to work.

Did you connect the battery cables under the hood to the wires running from the on/off switch? The directions WERE VERY VAGUE and we missed connecting those 2 wires under the hood the 1st time.

I managed to purchase two today, however we had to drive to another Wal-Mart 30 miles away. Now I almost wish we hadn't as I opened the owners manual to see the speed on this this since I already have a 6volt in the garage that only runs on pavement and was disappointed to find that this car only goes 1.86-3.73 MPH.

I think it probably will. The car we had before this had the SAME type of wheels with the rubber running down the center of the tire. Despite our old car being 1/3 the size and running max of 2mph, it would run on our thick pile carpet, just not very strong when the battery started losing strength after riding a while.

It should be ridden on smooth surfaces; would depend on carpet style.

Powered OFF. Make sure you can lift one side up and spin each tire freely. If you cannot its possible you tighten the front tires to tight or wrong. If front wheels spin good, then it's possible in the steering itself. The rods under the car may be bent or hitting plastic

Make sure to connect the wires under the hood to the battery! The instructions are NOT clear on this, and WE MISSED that at first! Battery will not charge unless it's hooked up to the wire under the hood. It comes disconnected.

If you still have the charger plugged into the car it won't start. Mine wouldn't start after charging, but I still had it plugged in when I tried. I unplugged it, tried again, and it took off.

No, there aren't any identifying markings on it, but it looks like a BMW to us. You can google BMW battery powered ride ons and see their ACTUAL brand sold overseas for 350 Euros. EEK!
