Hey there! When the charge cable stays green, it typically indicates that either the I/O board or the battery is having some issues (or the battery is fully charged, but that seems unlikely). If you've already tried making sure that the battery has a good connection and checking the pins of the connection are still all there, then I would make sure that your I/O board still has a good connection. Failing that, contact out customer service, and we'll see what we can do about replacing that battery for you.

Best of luck in your repair!

Thank you for your answer, the pins are still there and I don't know how to figure if the case is the battery or the I/O. What I am sure about, is that the battery was charging after I installed it. I was thinking that since the battery is new and I left the macbook without usage for 2 weeks, than that would be the case. I tried my charger with another macbook pro"my friend's macbook", and It was working fine.

Please guide me if i can do a test to figure out the case " battery or the I/O".

I have tried lots of online solutions with no luck ! please help
