Makita impact driver dead spots

I have a Makita 18 v impact driver. 16 months use and from last week occasionally wouldnt start. The led lights but wont drive either direction. I turned the driver by hand and it will kick in- like there is a dead spot on the rotor? Does this thing have brushes or maybe a dirty commutator?

Depends on model you have. There are 2 brushless models - BTD132 (14.4V) and BTD144 (18V) - both have big BL letters on housing. According to your picture, you have BTD140 which has brushes. When you open user manual, you can find section dedicated to changing brushes. In case it does not help, you migh want to check trigger. Juraj

When I press the power switch it starts to work at maximum rpm


The variable speed function is controlled by the switch. On rare occasions you can remove the switch, spray it with electronics cleaner and blow it out well to get it to work again. Usually you have to replace the switch. The switch for your impact driver is Makita part number 638326-6 and runs about $65.

Btd144 when pull trigger light flashes drill dont go


The battery itself has a deep discharge protection .
Or the electronic or the battery its a new
phenomenon where you can have bought electronica and a triggerswitch and you have measured the electric field on 0.3 ohm on both 2x3 coils and the battery measured on maybe 15 Volt and it do not give nothing yes the lamps burned , but there was not an charger in my case delivered so i am also waiting for this problem by a Makita Jigsaw because a colleague has allready a electronic circuit and switch ordered and tried with that battery and an other battery but no life at all, so a new battery should may be working. or a broken or new damaged electronic part was delivered. that brushless tools are a young technical thing, many brands have.
the teething problems out, by the switches and the power mosnfets(panasonic) Makita is new for me this comparable problem a have also have yesterday.
next week i know more about a possible solution.
