Getting an "expected } at end of input error" in Remote Start code

Hi all, ive been chipping away at this code cleaning up errors and i feel im close to the end, but this error has me stumped, here is the full error log.

Arduino: 1.8.13 (Windows Store 1.8.42.0) (Windows 10), Board: “ESP32 Dev Module, Disabled, Default 4MB with spiffs (1.2MB APP/1.5MB SPIFFS), 240MHz (WiFi/BT), QIO, 80MHz, 4MB (32Mb), 921600, None”

C:\Users\mattm\Documents\Arduino\6.5RSv2.1\6.5RSv2.1.ino: In function ‘void loop()’:

6.5RSv2.1:250:9: error: expected ‘}’ at end of input

} //Repeat program (look for start command)

^

6.5RSv2.1:250:9: error: expected ‘}’ at end of input

6.5RSv2.1:250:9: error: expected ‘}’ at end of input

6.5RSv2.1:250:9: error: expected ‘}’ at end of input

Multiple libraries were found for “WiFi.h”

Used: C:\Users\mattm\Documents\ArduinoData\packages\esp32\hardware\esp32\1.0.4\libraries\WiFi

Not used: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_1.8.42.0_x86__mdqgnx93n4wtt\libraries\WiFi

exit status 1

expected ‘}’ at end of input

Any help or tips in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

At the very least, you are missing one or more } at the end of the loop() function

Auto Format the code in the IDE and all function definitions, such as this

       //Begin function: Turn on accessory and ignition
        void begin();

and

       void wts();
        {

should be on the left margin

A question for you. Why are you calling the loop() function in your sketch ?

I can’t see the code, void wts();but those semicolons worry me

That makes sense, ill give auto format a try. The loop function is supposed to return the program to the begining in the event the start sequence fails at any point during the program. Am I using the wrong function for this purpose?

I can't see the code,

  void wts();

but those semicolons worry me

Im trying to post the full code but it wont allow it, says max 9000 characters

Whatever the limit, I don’t like the look of those semicolons.

When i remove the semi colons it says that “a function definition is not allowed before a { token”

I attached a copy of the ino file if that helps at all

OK, now I’m at a PC now

The C++ dialect used by Arduino doesn’t allow you to define a function inside another function.

Hint: If, after using the auto-format tool, your function definitions don’t start on the extreme left margin, you’ve done something wrong.

Also, unlimited recursive calls are not generally A Good ThingTM

That makes sense, would that be possible in the esp32 idf? Or is there some other way to call on functions within a function.

Thanks for that tip too I can see that theres more of an issue than i thought

After adding and removing some brackets in places and another few snippets that didnt belong, the code finally compiles! Im not sure if it will work 100% yet, but my issues has been solved for now, thank you for all your help!!!
