MacBook not recognizing battery, not even in coconutbattery

Testo:

So here is the problem:
 
I wanted to upgrade a Macbook Pro 15 Mid 2012 from 4 GB of RAM to 8 GB and switch the HDD for an SSD.
 
I followed the regular procedure:
 
* Turned off the macbook
* Opened the case
* Disconnected the battery
* Made the RAM and SSD replacement
* Reconnected the battery
* Case back on
 
After doing so, I installed macOS Sierra and noticed that the battery icon was gone. I tried disconecting the power cord and the laptop shut down.
 
I looked over the internet, tried the SMC reset, the P-RAM reset, tried disconecting the battery and reconecting, all that to no success.
 
The laptop was bought in 2013, the battery has 3 years of intense usage, I don't know the cycles or life as the laptop wasn't mine.
 
In coconutBattery, the battery doesn't show up.
 
Is this a case of a dead battery only?
 
Could it be the RAM or SSD causing trouble?
 
I get the battery icon with an X only on login screen, after loging in i don't even get the battery icon.
 
Should I get a new battery to test it out?
 
I mean, the laptop works great with the power cord conected, nothing fails...
 
Can you help figure out whats wrong?

UPDATE
 
I have not been able to get a new battery to test it, but I tried resetting the SMC several times (The light in the charger does not change...);
 
I did the P RAM reset several times too;
 
Using a multimeter, is there a way I can check if the pins of the battery connector are receiving power?
 
I mean, I have been reading a lot about SMC getting fried and I'm praying that's not the scenario here...
 
I did not see any sparks or whatever like in some people cases... I used a proper plastic pry tool to remove the battery all the times, so i don't think I could have caused any king of short.
 
Whats bothering me is the coincidence, has anyone ever experienced a battery that dies from being disconnected for a while and then reconnected? It was 89% when I got the laptop before the update.

Here are photos of the logic board. If anyone could point me out the components I should check with a multimeter, I would be very grateful.
