Easiest and safest: take the tool and batteries to nearest shop where they sell Dewalt. Ask the guy to let you use their batteries in your tool and vice versa, your batteries in their tool. DYI procedure:To check batteries: - if you have some multimeter, try to measure voltage and if possible also amps (but only for a fraction of the second, if battery is good, amperes shoudl jump up very quickly) - if you have no multimeter, try to find 12V bulb (check spare bulbs for your car), use wire to connect and it should light up. To check tool: open it up, take some 12V DC source, put wires on contacts inside the handle where battery connects. Pull the trigger and it should work. you can try to put wires directly to contacts on the motor. Follow cables from the switch to motor.

Needed -2 pair of adjustable pliers.

Hold the chuck with one pair, hold the hand chuck with the other pair turn in opposite directions to loosen bit.

Take care not to mar the plastic on the chuck.

battery is bad and needs to be replaced. But first you might try and clean the contacts.

Try placing the battery in a freezer for six hours before trying to charge the battery and if this doesn't work find a friend with a working charger and make sure using that method that you don't just have a bad charger.

You can try warranty services. However, if they are having an event in your area you might just try going down there. I have taken bad batteries to them in the past and they just GAVE me a new one.

What kind of batteries are they? If they are NiMh and haven't been used for a while, they can lose their charge and NOT be sble to be charged again!

Do you have a 3rd battery that does work? Buy a battery to make sure the charger is working or that the drill is working. If yes to both of these, then your old batteries are NFG.

As far as a schematic goes, I would guess that it is proprietary in nature and that not even dewalt "repairs" them. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the same model had several different versions of circuit boards representing different production runs
