2010 MBP works but doesnt charge the battery.

No liquid damage, its detecting battery in About. I always seem to replace ISL6259 but my question is "how to tell if it is in fact the ISL?" any help is much appreciated thanks in advance.

When OSX detects battery, first step is testing known good battery.
Post exact voltage for PPBUS_G3H and run ASD EFI.

Thanks for the BRD. here is the conclusion.

ISL6259 area was fucked. looks like someone gave it a good blowjob with an hot air gun on hi flow and blew shit everywhere. resistor where a cap was supposed to be and so on. dare i say the original fault all along was probably the battery. out of 6 batteries i had they were all broken lol. i tested it with a 13" battery and what do ya know??? it started charging.

Thanks once again, this job is done! as for the failing GPU whos gives a daam, some customers love thier shit so much they will literally use it to the death. so long as they are aware of the issue then thats all thatr matters.
