Todays alternators are not designed to charge weak or dead batteries. if the battery is new it should have no problem maintaining the battery even if it is larger, however if you remove the battery without using the saver tool (see pic) you can corrupt the programming of the BCM and that can cause a shut down of all accessories including the charging system, if this did happen then the dealer will have to reflash the system to bring it back to operational condition, if it did not happen then the charging system should be checked out, it is possible that the output of the alternator is not up to specs.
