The light pattern indicates ,"Hot/Cold Pack Delay".

What is the residual voltage on your battery, if it is too low, charger will not engage. If the voltage is below the threshold allowed, simply jolt the Nickel Cadmium battery with a car charger to bring it up, then install on charger.

The problem is your batteries are either over heating or worn out. You might also have a problem with the charger but you'll need Dewalt tech support to determine if it's good or bad.
The first thing to do is clean the contacts. Use a white plastic pencil eraser and clean all the contacts you can reach. If there are any contact you can reach with the eraser use a Q-tip that is just damp (not wet) with rubbing alcohol to clean them.
Discharge your batteries completely then put them in the freezer for 8-24 hours. Take the batteries out of the freezer and let the set 24-48 hours after that put them on the charger, they'll either charge or you need new batteries (more likely) or a charger.

The batteries are probably bad...especially if you kept them outside in the cold or at some point they got frozen...also, if you don't use them for a long period they will exhibit this behavior..get new batteries

This is indicating the battery is too hot to charge, usually after coming off the tool right after some hard work. During the charging process the battey heats up so if you charge a hot battery, thereby making it hotter, you shorten the lifespan of the battery considerably. If you are getting a hot/cold pack delay indication on the charger, it should automatically start charging once the battery has cooled down sufficently.
