I would clean the contacts on the battery to be charged and the charger. You can do this with a discharged battery and the charger unplugged usins a small mechanics wire brush,they can be had made like a tooth brush and work well for tight places. Gently brush and then blow out with air. Make sure that battery is firmly seated in charger and if light continues to flash you probably need a new battery. Thank you.

My charger only charges for 3 min then green light comes on saying it's fully charged


You could disassemble the battery and replace only the small 6 or 8 accumulators inside. Pay attention to the correct wirings. I replace the original accus NiMh with Li-ion and another charger, off course.

Makita DC18RA Makstar Li ion Charger three lights


Alternate Red and Green flashing means bad battery. Buy a new one, or take it to a Makita Service center for replacement if it's under warranty.

Normally the yellow light indicates hot battery, but it could also mean dirty battery contacts so the heat sensor can't be read, or that the fan is clogged with dust and unable to cool the battery. The manual says let the battery cool and try again. If the yellow still flashes, it's contacts or the fan.

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.

Makita makes two 12V Ni-Cad pod batteries: Battery 1222/2.0Ah (PN: 192598-2) and Battery 1220/1.3Ah (PN: 192681-5). Makita's universal charger (PN: DC1804) will charge any Ni-MH or Ni-Cad pod or stick battery from 7.2V to 18V.

Need to know what the lights mean on a makita dc24sa charger


• When the battery cartridge is inserted, the charging light color will change from green to red and charging will begin.
The charging light will remain lit steadily during charging.
• One red charging light indicates charged condition in 0 – 80% and two red ones indicates 80 – 100%.
• With finish of charge, the charging lights will change from two red ones to two green ones.
• The charging time is as follows:
Battery B9017A, BH1220, BH1420, BH9020A: approx. 20 minutes.
Battery B2417, BH1233, BH1433, BH2420, BH9033A: approx. 30 minutes.
Battery B2430, BH2433: approx. 60 minutes.
