Runs only off of AC power. Can you really fix it?

I recently replaced the hard drive in my iBook and now it will not charge the battery. I replaced the battery connector what could it be? I click on the battery and it says battery not charging. I ran the coconut battery thing and it says

Charger connected

Battery not charging

Current Battery Capacity is at 82%

It is an aftermarket battery and charger.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

With Coconut stating the battery as good, it probably is. I would see if it will run on battery power alone. If not then I would have to suspect the battery connector, either the part or its connectors. The main suspect would be the battery transfer board, Apple part #922-6183 as seen in the lower left of this diagram:

The poster has already replaced the battery connector though.

Test the battery in another computer- if it does not work, get a new battery.
