I have a 13" 2017 MacBook Pro no Touch Bar model. It is not connected to a power source but it still shows as charging. While this is not affecting my Mac's performance or anything, but now I don't get that low battery warning when the charge reaches 5% or low, so it just shuts down at 0% without me realising it.

I tried starting it in Safe Mode, but the issue is present there as well.

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) What is the version of macOS running on your MacBook? Go to System Preferences app → Energy Saver and try toggling Show battery status in menu bar checkbox shown at the bottom. – Nimesh Neema Jun 21 '19 at 12:27
  • Hi @NimeshNeema , I tried that as well but it didn't help. MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.5 – vedang09 Jun 21 '19 at 12:58
  • Try cleaning the ports and see if that helps. You should also consider seeking assistance with Apple authorized service provider especially if its covered under warranty. – Nimesh Neema Jun 21 '19 at 12:59

Welcome to AskDifferent! Try to perform a SMC reset, and possibly also a NVRAM reset.

From https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295:

The SMC is responsible for these and other low-level functions on Intel-based Mac computers:

  • Responding to presses of the power button
  • Responding to the display lid opening and closing on Mac notebooks
  • Battery management
  • Thermal management
  • Sudden Motion Sensor (SMS)
  • Ambient light sensing
  • Keyboard backlighting
  • Status indicator light (SIL) management
  • Battery status indicator lights
  • Selecting an external (instead of internal) video source for some iMac displays
  • Tried both. Didn't help :( – vedang09 Jun 21 '19 at 15:06

Same issue here. I took it to applestore and the voltage sensor was broken. Replacement was quoted €68. Fortunately, warranty covered it.
