Hi, guys. I hope you can help me with my son's truck. It is a Rollplay Chevrolet Silverado, model W461. I bought it in 2015.

For about the past year, it has not worked right. The OEM battery would charge to only about 4 volts, so I replaced that with a generic brand. It charges fine. Now the truck works for a split-second then quits, then work intermittently for a second. The foot pedal switch tested OK with an ohm meter, but I replaced it anyway. Still it works for only a split-second about every 10th or 15th time you press the pedal.

It quit about 18 months ago, and I turned it upside down and jiggled some wires, put it back on its wheels and it worked fine for a while. That hasn't helped this time.

Suggestions are welcome. It'd be nice if he could play with it again before he gets too big. It is kept in the garage.
