Hi there,

It looks like you've done up to the third step or so - I believe the only issue you have is an extra semicolon in your JavaScript:

function bikeBell()  {
         document.getElementById("bikeBell");.play();
                                          //^ right here
        }

If you remove that, it should pass!

Thank you so much Katie

Hi there! You're doing great, but there are two things going on here. Your function contains an extra semicolon which is causing a syntax error. And the button is still linked to startCar instead of bikeBell.

You need to tell the button to run the bikeBell function here:

 <!--Button-->
    <a href="javascript:bikeBell();"><img src="images/bikeLock.png" alt="key"></a>

Inside your bikeBell function you typed:

document.getElementById("bikeBell");.play();  //You have a ; between ("bikeBell") and .play()

But you meant to type:

document.getElementById("bikeBell").play();  //Remove the semicolon between ("bikeBell") and .play()

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
