Can someone tell me what I do wrong here?

I get always error message "Pleas pring out the exception's message using System out object"

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        GoKart kart = new GoKart("yellow");
        if (kart.isBatteryEmpty()) {
          System.out.println("The battery is empty");

      } catch(IllegalArgumentException iae){
      System.out.println("Baterry low!!!");

Instead of using println, try using printf and use iae.getMessage().
