Hi Tim, Sounds like you got it figured out! The only question I see is if there is a quick fix, and it looks like you answered your own question. You can certainly pursue requesting that it be fixed as a manufacturing defect/ faulty part, or even a safety hazard as that is your right. While I can not suggest you take that route, the old metaphor of the sparking trigger that melted in my hand always seemed to get a lot of attention. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!

Your battery could say its good by just testing voltage,but when a load is put on it , its a different story. My dewalt batt. did the same thing I opened up the batt. case and there was 12 "C" sized batteries inside linked together with little metal strips. I bought 12 rechargeable "C" batts. and carefully drilled where the metal strips are soldered, changed out batt. and re solder. It's been over a year now and still drilling . Also you should do this one batt. at a time so you don't put one in the wrong order .

Hi again, Because of the age of these batteries, this may or may not work but you have nothing to lose. The theory here is that over time, oxides built little bridges in a ni cad battery between the anode and cathode thus shorting the battery, shocking the battery burns those bridges and if the cells are still intact it will work again. So take your stronger battery or cables and being sure to observe the correct polarity touch or brush the positive to positive and negative to negative several times. The first times will spark and then as the bridges burn the spark will decrease. Put the battery in the charger and the charge light should come on. Leave the battery in the charger until it reaches a full charge. If after this procedure you still have the defective indication, then the cells were bad and you will still have to replace the battery. Good luck, please let me know how this works for you!
