Battery only works in Recovery Mode. Instantly goes to sleep in MacOS 10.14.1.
Hi, I have recently replaced the battery in my 2015 MacBook Air and have been having some issues that I can’t find any information about online.
MacOS says ‘Battery Detected: No’, but says the battery health is ‘Normal’.
When I unplug the MagSafe connector, the Mac goes into sleep mode instantly so I can only use it when plugged in. But, I can unplug the MacBook Air when in Recovery Mode and it doesn’t turn off instantly.
The MagSafe 2 status light is always orange.
Different things can happen each time I boot. Sometimes it acts like there is no battery at all, sometimes it says the battery is at 0% and not charging and then sometimes, it says the battery is at 0% and there is no power adapter plugged in.
One more thing that I have noticed is that straight after the startup sound, I can unplug the MacBook Air and it won’t turn off until it almost finishes loading and then it will instantly sleep.
It is a 13” 2015 MacBook Air and the replacement battery is a genuine Apple battery with only 312 cycles.
Hopefully there is a solution for this.
