Electric car won't start!

I headed out to a fire department meeting last night and the car wouldn't start. Lights on the dashboard worked, but the contactors wouldn't engage to fire up the controller. After spending several hours today debugging, the problem turned out to be a loose nut on the busbar which held the "key on" wire connections. Glad I wasn't paying me by the hour.
