    Look at the label on the charger which shows what each light combination means. I don't have that charger but have another Makita... I am looking at a picture of the charger now and if there is a problem detected with either the charger or the battery it will show a yellow light in the third indicator light at the bottom.

    is it showing that?

• When the battery cartridge is inserted, the charging light color will change from green to red and charging will begin.
The charging light will remain lit steadily during charging.
• One red charging light indicates charged condition in 0 – 80% and two red ones indicates 80 – 100%.
• With finish of charge, the charging lights will change from two red ones to two green ones.
• The charging time is as follows:
Battery B9017A, BH1220, BH1420, BH9020A: approx. 20 minutes.
Battery B2417, BH1233, BH1433, BH2420, BH9033A: approx. 30 minutes.
Battery B2430, BH2433: approx. 60 minutes.
