Melted terminal on Power Wheels vehicle

My granddaughters PW Volkswagen buggy had stopped working, bought new battery, not it. Found floor board accelerator switch had a melted terminal on it. Replaced with a common crimp on wire connector which worked briefly , now it will go for about 1 minute on a full charge and stop. Later it will do the same. Any ideas? Thanks.

It is either a switch or a motor, you will want to test the switches with a Ohm meter and find out what is getting power, and what is not. We can go from there, or you can take your vehicle to a Power Wheels service center and they can fix it for you.
