My neighbor has the jeep and I have the BCP truck (taxi/cop car looking thing which usually run $189-$199 or so). I love these things and the company is great about honoring the warranty, but otherwise you can find spare parts on amazon, ebay, and aliexpress. I upgraded mine from the instant start stop to the slow start stop option by buying the controller/wiring for the jeep ($20), it is much better now because it does not jerk my kid around.
To your question: I would check the motor by supplying 12VDC pwr directly to the motor from a battery or wall wart/transformer after disconnecting it from the jeeps wiring.
To what I think what was another persons problem: My neighbor had a bad charging port on his Jeep that not only caused it not to charge, but also not to run (due the mechanism in it going bad - It cuts off the voltage to the car when charging), which is easily replaced or bypassed if you are out of warranty. If that and the fuse mentioned in another post both check out, I would suggest replacing the controller with an exact replacement and you can get that for less than $20 online and includes a new/spare remote control. An easy way to make sure you get the right replacement controller is to make sure the remote control in the replacement set matches your existing one. If you end up with the wrong one, in my experience you can still make the two different PIN connectors work interchangeably.
You can always do a google "image" search if having trouble finding a part or place that sells it if you can at least find an image - this has been a great addition to my internet search options lately.
Hope some of that helps.
