Im not sure what is wrong

I am working on the lights practice and am failing the second step. Im not sure what is wrong with my code:

extends Area2D

onready var timer := $Timer
onready var light := $Light
onready var animation_player := $AnimationPlayer

func _ready() -> void:
timer.connect("timeout", self, "_on_Timer_timeout")
# Connect the body_entered signal to the _on_body_entered() function

func _on_body_entered(body: Node) -> void:
# Set light.enabled to true to turn on the lights and start the timer
# to turn off the lights after it counts down.
light.enabled = true

func _on_Timer_timeout() -> void:
light.enabled = false

    You're almost there! The reason you're not passing and Godot cannot turn on the lights is a little typo in your connection of body_entered.


    You wrote _on_body_entered() with parentheses inside the second string. The engine expects the name of the function, without parentheses (parentheses are a tool to execute a function).

    You can change the code like this to pass the practice:
