On my sons PW's, the footpedal switch has gone bad before, from water, took it apart and sanded everything.

But maybe time to get out your meter. Try all of the gear positions to see if all speeds and reverse are gone or just one....

X2 on the dirty connections. Inspect all the switches and clean them. I sprayed that red battery saver stuff on then after cleaning and it has been solid.
I have the purple 6 volt Jeep. I think it went 3 mph. I put a cheap 12 volt Ebay battery in it and now it goes 7 mph. The thing gets sideways when my son takes off from a stop.
