It is shot, they don't last long. I have boxes full of dead batteries, makita's especially. It is cheaper to buy a new drill motor than to buy new batteries. That is how they make money I guess. You have to have their batteries. Hope this helps.

E is for Error. It is possible that the battery is not getting a good connection. it could be a defective battery ,Not even robots are perfect. do you have the owners manual or find a manual on line for it. If under warranty send it in for repair if you open the unit up it voids the warranty. could be faulty wiring.

Does makita 14.4 3.0ah work with makita 14.4 2.6ah drill

If the battery fits in the tool normally, without forcing it, yes both batteries will work in your tool. The AH (Ampere Hours) rating on batteries is a measurement of how long the battery will last on a full charge. Higher AH ratings means the battery lasts longer on a charge but usually at the expense of a slightly larger and heavier battery.

How to charge a makita battery

remove the battery from drill and insert into the charger, the red charge light should come on and then after about an hour it should change to green indicating a full charge, there is a lable on the charger to indicate other problems that might occur. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Faullty makita DC1804T charger red lights keeps flashig and wont turn green.

I think if you have a battery that is pretty much dead, the Makita charger will never fully charge it and so it blinks. My newer battery charged up in 1/2 an hour but my old-as-the-hills one just keeps on blinking. I removed it and it works. It never really held a charge long though, for years now. It would be nice if the charger had some kind of manual telling you what all those universal symbols(I don't know who's universe they're talking about) mean.

How long should I leave my drill on the charger? It's a makita #6040d.

It shouldn't take much more than one hour to charge your battery. If it isn't taking a charge or the charge is weak, your battery may be worn out. Look for a local dealer of Makita parts or try for a new battery.
