Hi everyone, I could really use some help with my 2009 15” Macbook Pro (A1286). Running Mavericks.
I have had battery issues for a while. Battery was in “Replace now condition”, and my power adapter (LED) wouldn't light up, be very dim, or flicker. Sometimes it wouldn't charge unless the cord was moved in different angles or the magsafe was firmly pressed against the port.

So I bought a new battery, and it worked great but wouldn't charge. So I bought and replaced the dc-in board since there was a little damage to it (Not water damage). Still the battery wouldn't charge. So then I get a new power adapter and it wouldn't light up. So I did a SMC reset, and it charged for about 10 minutes then stopped charging. Is there anything else that I can do that I haven't tried?

Here is my battery info:

Those could be the source of your problems. Try replacing them with Apple OEM parts. MagSafe and batteries should never be replaced with third party products.
