    Hi, I agree with rowdy that its not batteries, the failure for batteries is not to start and stop they will just start slowing down then quit. After ten years sounds more like the brushes are shot. Again like rowdy says we need a model number to tell you more.

    Are these the original batterys? If so they should have gave out over 7 years ago. I would think the switch though. Does it start and then stop and as you pull the trigger go again if so I think switch. Let me know what model number and I will look at a breakdown for you

Get the battery tested. The light draws a very small amount of power and will work if the battery is just about dead, but to operate the drill, you need a strong battery.

Why does my Makita 6011D cordless drill not work when my charged battery in installed? The battery does work on my Makita saw so I know it is not the battery.


Look inside where the Battery terminals connect.
THey are flat metal springs inside the drills Battery hole.
Make sure the are not compressed down causing them not to touch the battery terminals of the battery.

ALso check the Brushes on the drills motor they may need replacing...

Rebuilding makita battery instructions


Rechargeable batteries are almost never worth rebuilding and never last very long when they are. In some cases, Makita being one, if the circuit board in the battery detects something wrong with the battery, it 'bricks' the battery. This is not resettable and the battery will not charge on a Makita charger. I'd be looking to get my money back from the repairman since his rebuild didn't take.

I have a Makita 12v cordless drill which has a Fast Charger (DC1290A) and 1220 Ni-Cad battery. Problem is that the battery only charges for 4 seconds and the charger shuts down. I need some input to decide...


Hi,
It sounds like the problem is the battery. It sounds like there are shorted cells in it so that it starts to draw too much current from the charger and the charger shuts down as a safety measure.
I hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Switch and bateries


Makita makes two 12V Ni-Cad pod batteries: Battery 1222/2.0Ah (PN: 192598-2) and Battery 1220/1.3Ah (PN: 192681-5). Makita's universal charger (PN: DC1804) will charge any Ni-MH or Ni-Cad pod or stick battery from 7.2V to 18V.

Charger doesn't charge anymore


If you are comfortable with removing the upper half of the housing, unplug charger and remove the screws, take a look at the circiut board for a "cold" solder joint or broken component, usually the round ceramic looking piece with the copper wire around it. but look at the whole board.

Is it possible to replace the batteries in a 12v makita battery pack


Unfortunately there are no repairable parts in a battery. Once a battery is dead it's usually best to find a good recycling center for it, most The Home Depot's have one. Makita lists battery 1234 (Part #193157-5) for this tool but it's the old Ni-MH battery. I'd use battery 1222 (Part #192598-2), it's the better Ni-Cd battery.
