- Make sure clear film is taken off solar panel
- Take off solar panel clear cover if still not moving.
- Product will not run on a cloudy day, in shaded locations, indirect sunlight, or under a flourescent light.
- To use indoors, use a 100 watt halogen light.
- Make sure pinion gear is pushed onto the motor pin until it is flush with a flat surface. This is important as the pinion gear will not engage the other gears if not pushed in all the way.
