iPod claiming low battery

Hey guys, need some advice.

I just got a refurbished ipod classic 7th gen from Amazon (Superior Trading) and when I plug in either my headphones or my Bluetooth it'll tell me (after about 10 to 15 minutes) that my battery is dead and it'll "shut down" temporarily before coming back on and working fine! Each time it's fully charged. But it won't have any issues at all if it's plugged into my aux cord in my jeep.

New battery? Something else maybe?

@meatgenie definitely start off with a new battery. Carefully when you use this guide. For step 18 is tricky since you can easily break the connector of the board. I use a small paper clip bend into an L-shape and gently pull the clip straight up. Get the battery from here once you figured out if it is a thick or thin model (check the number on your battery to get an exact replacement.

Since this iPod is a bear to open, I would check to ensure it is not covered under any kind of warranty with the company you bought it from.
