Did you replace the battery? If so - try reinstalling the original battery. There are more poor quality batteries available than original high quality.

If the battery symbol appears with the lightening bar underneath this means that the dock connector appears to be ok but if replacing the battery doesn't work it'd be worth trying a new dock connector.

Did the battery you installed specify that it was for your model the 3GS not the 3G? They are different batteries and if it is not the correct model or if it is a low quality battery you may see these results.

There is a good chance that the housing assembly you bought has been sitting in numerous warehouses for the last several years. There is a good chance that the battery dried out.

If you got a voltmeter, you can check the voltage on the pins. Should be around 3.8 volts dc or so, with the left pin being ground. If you plug in the charger and measure, you should see the voltage going up if it is low.. If it stays the same, the battery won't hold a charge, and a replacement battery is needed...

The first thing I change on any iphone or ipod that won't turn on or charge is the battery

If li ion batteries are deeply discharged, internal damage will occur. Usually there is somekind of control circuit to prevent deep discharge, cutting of the load if voltage drops to a certain point. But li-ion batteries loose charge over time and will die if not charged regularly.
