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.

When a Dewalt charger is showing a fast blinking red light it means the battery is no longer chargeable. It may be because of a bad cell or short inside the battery. Whatever the reason the charger will not charge the battery and it needs to be replaced.

Most likely you have a bad switch - the other issue can be worn brushes or brushes that are getting hung up in the brush tubes.

There may be a short in the motor or wiring, or the gearbox is broken or otherwise seized up. Dewalt provides replacements for most parts at reasonable prices, so it's worth taking the drill apart to find out what is going on. I suspect you will find damaged wiring inside due to overheating; you may be able to identify the problem by seeing where the wire insulation is charred or melted. Unless you have a good drill of the same model so you can compare electrical resistance, it's a bit hard to ID a bad motor with an ohmmeter. However, you can try visual and olfactory inspection - if it looks and smells burned, it probably is. You still should check the transmission to make sure it isn't the source of the problem.

You have burned out the drill motor, it is shorted, the battery smoked due to a direct short, one thing I don't understand why the thermal limiter didn't trip in battery pack, I would contact manufacturer and try to get hem to buy you a new drill.

You may have a failing capacitor on the secondary side of charger power supply circuitry. The output voltage will be low or have a lot of ripple; this would cause the error detected. Pictured below is a bad electrolytic capacitor next to several good ones (this is not from a battery charger). Notice how the top is bulged upward instead of being flat - it indicates pressure caused by the capacitor burning out.

There are other failures that could cause this error code, but this one is highly probable.

please clear the contact of the battery and charger, charge the battery again. If still no help, please use a good battery to see if it is the problem of the Dewalt DC920KA battery or the charger.

Yes, when a battery is being used for a long time, you need to let it cool down and take it to charged. Although there is many fast charger now, but in order to protect the battery, I recommend you to buy a second battery for replace.
