It's the first cut of spring, the mower is taken out and uncovered by its tarp. The battery is fresh off the charger, and placed in the mower. The mower turns on with the familiar quiet hum, and crass is being minced.....for 5 seconds. The mower dies down, and the battery indicator light is flashing red green and orange rapidly, for about 10 seconds, before turning off...... where the mower can be restarted.....for 5 seconds, as it repeats itself.... switching batteries shows the same result

And both batteries work fine in another tool? If so, sounds like the mower is the problem. 
Was it stored outside under the tarp? Maybe there is some corrosion on the terminals in the mower where the battery connects.
Sounds like a call to Ego CS is in order. Give them a call at 1-855-EGO-5656 (1-855-346-5656) from 8:30AM - 8:00PM EST (Monday - Friday) & 10:00AM - 6:00PM EST (Saturday & Sunday). Call early in the day if you can.
