Record Collection Task Falsely Failing

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I have worked this issue out a few times and even when I am pretty confident that it is flawless, the tests fail. After a while I got fed up and opened the console, I copy and pasted my entire solution and the tests in the sidebar, it worked flawlessly in the console. It doesn’t work in the site though.

  **Your code so far**

// Setup
var collection = {
2548: {
  albumTitle: 'Slippery When Wet',
  artist: 'Bon Jovi',
  tracks: ['Let It Rock', 'You Give Love a Bad Name']
2468: {
  albumTitle: '1999',
  artist: 'Prince',
  tracks: ['1999', 'Little Red Corvette']
1245: {
  artist: 'Robert Palmer',
  tracks: []
5439: {
  albumTitle: 'ABBA Gold'

// Only change code below this line
function updateRecords(object, id, prop, value) {
if (value == "") {
  delete object[id][prop];
else if (prop != "tracks") {
  object[id][prop] = value;
else if (prop == "tracks") {
  if (object[id].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
  else {
    object[id][prop] = [];

updateRecords(collection, 5439, 'artist', 'ABBA');

Challenge: Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

What errors are you seeing when it fails??

And yes, Ive just run through all the tests in codepen, and I can’t immediately see why that fails either - But I’m far from being an expert here!

Ahhh… yes I can… I think…

Have a look at your ifs … you may need an And in there

I think that’s a starting point

Read the requirements again.

Your function must always return the entire object.

Hi, the first requirement of the challenge reads:

Your function must always return the entire object.

There is no return statement in your function yet.
