Adding a Powered Reverse to a vehicle that was not originally equipped with one is not a terribly difficult thing to do. If the kid(s) (or you) are tired of having to push / pull / drag their Car (Quad / Truck / Jeep) away from obstructions when they get “between a rock and a hard place” then you CAN add a Powered Reverse.

This is a bottom view of the wiring to the switch itself:



One thing to note is that if you have a vehicle with a high/low selector switch, simply adding this switch will allow high speed reverse. Wiring it to prevent that is possible when running dual batteries. See The definitive "Wiring diagram" thread Furthest to the left is a Power Wheels dual battery setup, usable only with matching battery voltages. If using different battery voltages, use the alternative diagram shown in the 3rd post.

Avoiding high speed reverse is also possible mechanically by combining the high/low and forward/reverse into one unit with something like shown below, available from Hobbymasters...
