It was working perfect the other night,the next day I grabed it to finish the job and nothing ,tryed battery with full charge got 3 real slow turns out of it and that was it. Charged both bats again samething 2-3 slow turns forward or reverse don't matter. Any ideas before I replace it?

If you bring it to a DeWalt dealer they can test it,to see if it's defective,dead,.Does the charger show any diagnosis?Porter Cable chargers show batt. problems,I dont know if DeWalt does.Were Batt cold?

Possibility that there is a bad connection between the battery and the drill. I had the same problem on a cheap one and had to bend the clips in the drill together a little.

Put the battery on it and hold the trigger down while shaking it vigoriously, if the drill begins to work while you are shaking, the brushes are shot. Give that a whirl.

On mine it was a connection on the drill that makes contact with the battery, I soldered it and filed down to fit, and it's fine now.
