    First do you have the switch in either the forward or reverse position. I would shift to either again just in case. Second look at where the battery connects and see if any debris or bent terminals. If this is a new tool I would take it back for a replacement. Milwaukee has a good warranty and it would probably not be worth the headache trying to fix, but we can if you want. Let me know

You have to activate the batteries by putting them in to the charger for a minute first, they are in an inactive state when first bought

Replacing brushes and are they part of the trigger

depending on the date code, the brushes might not be replaceable. I suggest going to and typing in your model number and under schematics find the one with the date code of your tool or get back to me with the code and I will research further, I looked at 3 breakdowns and one had replaceable brushes, and finally no they are not part of the trigger

How to unlock the chuck

this how to get a chuck off a drill.look inside the chuck for a screw. it will be a left handed screw.once you get the screw out put the chuck in a vice . you will need to squeeze it very tight. then put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger.if i wont come off you will need to hit the chuck with a hammer while you are holding the trigger. if you have a bit stuck in the chuck and cant get it out put the chuck in the vice and hit it very hard with a hammer until the chuck falls apart.i work on drills every day ,this is the only way we have found that works

No, it's showing that the battery is either not taking a full charge or the charger is not charging the battery properly. Find a Milwaukee service center, they will check them and most likely replace one or the other.
