Unfortunately, Makita’s li-ion battery packs have a design flaw. After having the same problem with my two batteries, I took it apart and saw the problem immediately. You see each battery pack has ten li-ion battery cells and a circuit board with a memory chip witch holds the charging history of the battery pack. But that memory chip constantly draws power from 2 of the 10 batteries. The current it draws is very small but if you consider it over 8 month or more, the power drain becomes very significant. You end up with a battery pack with 8 still fully charged battery cells and 2 drained battery cells. When you put this battery pack in the charger, it detects weak battery cells, assumes they are defective and refuses to charge. To avoid this problem you should charge your battery pack often, even if you haven't used it, every two months should be ok.
I suspect that Makita doesn’t make these battery packs, they make power tools, good ones too. Buy Makita should definitely have a few words with their supplier before they become a liability!

Refer to your manual - most hammer drills have one or two switch settings to turn the hammer function on or off.

There is no recall, whomever told you that should have told you where to send it. It is a nicad tool and the batteries have a short life . Replace it with li-ion powered battery tool.

Since you are looking for new charger for you husband, I would advice to buy these lithium chargers only as they are far more compact than traditional ones and are safer to use.Lithium jump starters are new and different battery chargers from tranditional ones. They were introduced in 2013. Amongst the recommeded ones, I would advice you to buy PowerGo or DB power jump starter as these are the most powerful and affordable ones.

My 20V battery was stored completely discharged for over 8 months. After all that time I bet the battery was holding no charge whatsoever. When you plug a completely drained battery to a charger the charger will experience a big demand in current and will fault out, flashing red. So we need to put just a little bit of charge in the battery for the charger to start working. What I did is with the battery in charger unplug and plug the charger like 10 times. Every time you plug it in it will send voltage to the battery for a split of a second before the charger fails. Eventually the battery will get enough charge for the charger to start working.

Apparently it's a double throw switch, so you might be able to bypass one side & get some more life out of it.
