  1. There is a fault on the battery, charger or drill. The battery is usually the problem. To check the battery, first charge it in the usual way. Then remove the battery and check its voltage with a voltmeter. If it is lower than expected, then the battery is faulty. If the voltage is OK, connect the battery terminals to a known resistor with an ammeter in series. For example, if you use an 18? resistor in series with an 18V battery, the resistor will draw a current of 1A. Note the time taken when the current starts to drop rapidly and disconnect the resistor immediately.
  2. Then multiply the current taken (in amps or milliamps) by the time in hours to find the capacity of your battery in amp-hours or milliamp-hours. If the capacity is as expected, then the fault is on the drill. If the capacity is much below the advertised capacity, then either the charger or the battery is faulty.
  3. The easiest way to determine whether the charger or battery is at fault is to borrow and try charging another good but discharged battery. If that battery is OK after charging, then the charger is OK, so the fault must be with your own battery. If the borrowed battery cannot be charged fully, then you have a charger problem.
  4. Note: The resistor may use a lot of power and get very hot. For example, an 18? resistor across 18 volts takes 1A, so the power used is 1A x 18V = 18 Watts. In this case, a suitable resistor would have a rating of at least 20 or 25 watts. Using a higher value resistance will reduce the power rating required, but it means you will have to check the battery for a longer time. Do not leave the resistor connected indefinitely as it will drain the battery too much and ruin it.

open jaws up completely. use a light and a mirror to see the inside top of chuck. you should see a Allen head screw inside you will need to back that screw out more than likely it will have lefthand threads .. then put a screw in holes on side of chuck head and lock upper pully hit with hammer..should come free then.there are vids on yout you can watch but other brands not yours .they are all the same.

This will all depend on the chargers charge rate, ie. if charger charges at 1000mah the a 2 ah battery will be charged in 2 hours . 1 can use ohms law to factor this as charger and battery are both unknowns ..

there is no rest button or way to rest battery more than likely 1 battery shorted out its now a open link in your battery so no voltage can pass to mower.time for a new battery or find someobe to repair it

I'm assuming you have a DCD970 as DeWalt doesn't have a DC970 and the DW970 is an impact driver. The chuck on your drill is a new design that doesn't have a lock screw inside the chuck, they are put on very tight with lock-tite to hold them on. They are made to be taken off with a special chuck holder and vice jig that only service centers have. The allen wrench method used on older chucks won't work as the chuck will just loosen when you hit the allen wrench. I have on occasion removed one by doing the following: Turn the chuck fully open then secure it in a vice with the drill straight up. Holding the drill body and using the handle for leverage, turn the drill counterclockwise, as you are looking down on it, with steady, strong pressure. If the chuck breaks free it will spin off easily. If you are at all afraid you may break the handle you may have to take or send it to a service center to have it removed.
