This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will diagnose and fix an issue with an electrically powered vehicle (car, tractor, motorcycle, airplane).  The issue needs to be associated with the electrical nature of the vehicle, so not a suspension issue...

Minimum requirements to get this BB
  - resolve an electrical issue with an electrically powered vehicle
  - primarily powered by electricity
  - must be a car, truck, tractor, garden tractor, golf cart, motorcycle, airplane, boat or other vehicle that transports humans
  - not a battery problem with a conventional vehicle
  - not an electric assist pedal bike, scooter or Christmas toy the kids ride around on

Points vary from 2 to 20 based on the complexity of the project and should be the same if you submitted it to Electricity Oddball

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - detailed description of the problem you're trying to solve
  - the things you did to diagnose and fix it
  - the failed components or parts that needed work
  - the fixed vehicle with evidence that it's fixed
Permaculture isn't that hard to understand. Sometimes a little bump helps:
