I've open the charger and found that Q4 is open. But they have removed the part number from the component so you can't get a replacement.

Could also be a faulty switch, only working in one direction. Also check to make sure the forward/reverse lever is connected properly and moving the appropriate part of the switch.

SOURCE: Ryobi impact drill compatibility with normal drill bits

Round bits are not compatible with the Ryobi impact drivers. You need the hex shank "quick connect" bits and accessories. There is an adapter available. it is basically a regular style of keyless drill chuck with the quick connect hex shank that should fit right in to your Impact.

How can I reset chip on my Makita lithium ion 18v battery


Based on experience I can tell you that it is is generally the temperature/cutoff/individual cell monitoring sensor in charger that dont allow the batteries to take a charge. Once the same condition is detected 3 times by the same charger it considers the batteries to be bad and refuses to accept it. I have 2 batteries that wont charge on one charger but works perfectly fine when i charge it on my other Makita charger so basically there is no problem with my batteries.
I would suggest first you check the voltage of your drained battery by a test multimeter. For 18volt battery if it is close to 18volts 1-2 volts less is just fine! Then there is no issue with your battery. Makita chargers are very expensive hitech which is useless in my opinion the lipo chargers (used in rc hobby) example skyrc are better quality cheaper and does a better job and you can easily charge your makita battery with it as well but this is only recommended if you decide not to go with Makita charger any more. Some basic information about multi chargers for Li-ion battery to follow the safety is make sure you use the right connectors with correct polarity. For 18v volts max voltage should not exceed more than 20.50 and the allowable charge current is 2.7amps also ensuring that batteries dont heatup.

Cordless drill - model KC9682C - probably 8 years old. Stopped working shortly after a battery re-charge. I'm guessing it's the battery. It charges for a few minutes then the red light goes off. Could it...


If light is on charger the charge is fine. You could verify using voltmeter it should put out = to what it says on the back of charger 12-18 volts or so.
Most likely battery is shot after 8 years they just dont' hold a charge anymore and they often will only charge for a few minutes when the chip in the computer tells the charger to shut off due to defective battery.
compare prices of new drills and new batterys sometimes new drill is not much more. Try ebay and harbor freight for ultra low priced batteries.

I have a Ryobi 18v drill with battery 130429002 that will not hold a charge. Expensive battery with very little use. Can you help?


If both batteries won't hold a charge the problem may be the charger (not providing a full charge). If one battery is OK and one not holding a charge, the problem is probably a defect with the battery. I know there expensive, (I recently had to replace one for DeWalt).

I have a mikita 12 volt and when I charge it it wont hold charge.


do you have a volt meter toi check the charger voltage? if so then read the voltage out of the charger, it should be 1 or 2 volts higher than the listing 12v would be 13 or 14 volts. if it's working you probally do have a bad battery. if the charger is out then you have a bad charger.
