New battery appears dead


Bought a new battery for a MacBook Pro Late 2016. Original battery appeared to fail overnight.  New battery is seen by the computer and also by CoconuytBattery but everything says not charging and 0% capacity.  Computer runs on Adapter but not at all with battery.  Is it possible that the battery I got through Ifixit is a bad one?  I have not seen a battery show no charge at all.  I measured the unloaded voltage of the original battery  and got 2.19V.  I have not tried to measure the new one in the computer.  What else could be wrong if the new battery is not a dud. Coconut shows the new battery age at 504 days so it is not that new, even out of the box.
