./GoKart.java:26: error: method charge() is already defined in class GoKart public void charge(){ ^ 1 error

From the error message, it sounds like you have at least two charge() functions somewhere in your GoKart.java file.

Hi Rodrick-

It looks like you may have two definitions for your charge() method. After you've defined your method -- denoted by {} -- and are trying to call it, there shouldn't be any {}. If you're still stuck, post your code and we'll take a look.

Good luck!
