How to Troubleshoot a Geotrax Locomotive

The GeoTrax locomotive is a toy train engine that is part of the GeoTrax Rail and Road system manufactured by Fisher Price 1. This train set is equipped with hills, tunnels, depot base, coal mine building and chute, and a bridge. The GeoTrax locomotive is battery-operated and is controlled by an age-appropriate, user-friendly, handheld remote control. Troubleshooting and repairing this locomotive is a process that can be done at home.

Check the track itself, if the locomotive is getting stuck or caught up in one area. If the track appears loose or not completely connected, click it into place.

Inspect the wheels on the bottom of the train. Use a small cloth or a Q-tip to clean out the wheels, if they are dirty.

Press the power button on the locomotive, if there is no power. It has an automatic shutoff, if left unattended for several minutes.

Open the battery compartment on the back of the locomotive with a Phillips screwdriver, and switch out the three AAA-batteries with new ones, if the train will not power up.

Open the battery compartment on the handheld remote with a Phillips screwdriver, and switch out the three AAA-batteries with new ones, if the remote will not power up.
