- Where: Upon arriving at Happy Pig Motel
Upon arrival to the Happy Pig Motel, you'll notice that the bounty board and vending machines are inaccessable. Scooter will contact you to tell you that you should turn the steam pump back on to get power back.
Predictably, this doesn't quite cut it. Turns out that the pump is, as Scooter Eloquenty puts it, "Broke as hell", and needs some replacement parts. This is where you come in - you'll have to go to several other pumps nearby and scavenge some replacement parts.
Find steam valve
The steam valve is the quickest part to get to, being located in the small bandit camp right next to the motel. In order to get to it, you'll need to jump onto the trash box, then onto the roof of the hut and then shoot the ladder on the pump down so that you can climb to the top and retrieve the valve. Doing this will alert the bandits and initiate a small fight with Nomads, Crazed Marauders and Suicide Psychos.
The capacitor is at another pump a little further down hill, surrounded by Skags. You'll have to clear the area so that you may get to it unhindered - once the Skags have been taken care of, head to the base of the pump and open the panel. You'll find that the Skags have eaten the capacitor and that you have a fresh batch of them to sort out. Kill the Skags until one of them drops the capacitor.
The gearbox can be found near the exit to Three Horns - The Divide, quite close to the Happy Pig Motel. A Badass Bullymong has built a home on this pump and therefore has the the gearbox on him. Simply kill the Bullymong and loot the gearbox from its corpse.
Now that you've collected all the parts you need, head back to the Happy Pig Motel and install them on the Steam pump: The capacitor on the base, the gearbox near the middle and the valve right on the top. The higher places can be accessed by climbing the ladder near the steam pump.
Once done, hop back down and turn it on. You'll see that power has now been restored, and with it you can now access the vending machines and the bounty board.
