My son owns a lot of toys that does not use. This remote car was sitting in his room for almost a year. One day my son and I decided to organize that mess and see what toys he wants to keep or donates.

It is a nice cool looking car and my son wanted to donate that. I put fresh batteries in the car and the remote control and powered them on. Both the car and the remote control came on but I could not control the car for some reason.

My son took the remote out of my hands and gave it a smack and the car worked.  It seems like loose connections there so I took the car and the remote control to my shop for further inspection.

It is a powerful car and it can go up the hills very easily but it needs five batteries and one 9 volts for the remote control.

Few screws off and I was able to see the inside of the device and right away I could spot the cold soldering joints there.

I re soldered all the joints there; made sure all is well. I cleaned the switches, the board, put everything back together and tested.

I also took the cover off on the car and re soldered all joints there and made sure all is well there too. As you can see in the photo, the car worked perfectly.

On question remained, who will be the lucky kid to get this car? I did not wait for long because one kid who lives nearby my shop saw me testing it and he was asking me questions and right away, he became the owner of the car. He was happy and surprised at the same time. Later on my son and this kid became good friends.

    Good job, but not much in the technical sense we can learn from this repair though. Since our soldering technique is just basic knowledge.

    Aside from the car being repaired, the best thing is to have a new friend. Well done!
