If you have had the cable done per the recall, I would either take the battery back to wherever you purchased it or hook it up to a voltage meter to see how much power the battery is producing. It could be faulty?

If the battery was not registered to the vehicle upon replacment the vehicle will kill it from over charging. your car uses a smart charging cycle and needs to be reset every time you replace the battery.

To add to this note, it took a while but we found a corrupt seat module under the driver's seat. And there are other modules in the trunk that may have bad connectors.
