Hello everybody, I have slightly water damaged MacBook Air 820-00164, all pub is cleaned and all works, despite charging.

I have changed: ISL6259HRTZ and also same resistors near it.

it works from battery, for example 77%, but when charger attached, it immediately shows 100% and charging symbol, really isn't charging. Also there is no light on charger. also Mac works only from charger.

charging/audio board is good, flex between audio board and main board is also good.

I need advice, how to find the cause? what signal is responsible fo battery % control?

Not know much but based on schematic this 2 lines communicate with battery.


You can check the available schematics 820-00163 and 820-00165 files.
There is a 2 in 1 diode connected to this lines i would test him but problem is schematic in one is No Stuff in other is available look if yours have it but also 2 pull up resistors are available to this 2 lines test them.

Do not wait that i feed you with the tea spoon, the site is full of info have patience searching and reading because this is the great way to learn from others.
