Replacement battery keeps not being recognized
I ordered and installed a replacement battery from iFixit and it seemed to be working fine for a while, however after running for a while the battery will not be recognized. When this happens, if I shut down and reset the SMC it will work again for a while but will later do the same thing resulting in needing another SMC reset.
I’ve also reset the PRAM along with updating to the latest SMC firmware for my Mac model all to no avail. I’ve inspected the battery connections many times and it appears to be plugged in just fine. I figured it’s not due to a faulty connection since a SMC reset kicks it back into gear, but this issue is really messing with my workflow.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I’ve also downloaded and ran CoconutBattery. After a fresh SMC reset, coconut says that the battery is in good condition and has no issues.
EDIT 2: Here is a screenshot of CoconutBattery with the SMC freshly reset (battery working)
Here is after battery stops being recognized:
Is this a good question?
