Task 2 says Task 1 is no longer passing

What I said in the title. I made no changes to what I wrote for Task 1, just added the code for Task2. Task 1: Create a new private field named barCount that will track how many bars of energy our GoKart battery currently has.

class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_BARS = 8;
  private String color;
  private int barCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    this.color = color;

  public String getColor() {
    return color;

  public void charge(){
     barCount = MAX_BARS;

Hi there! In your last method charge, instead of one open curly brace and one closed curly brace, you have two open curly braces. This is causing a syntax error resulting in the inability to compile the code. This is why you are receiving the Task <#> is no longer passing. This is the most common reason to get this particular error, although there can be others.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
