You may have to see about recalibrating the battery...

But if the system management controller has corrupted you may need to reset it...

Learn to identify if this would be a path to consider, as there are other options first.

Some other settings are hiding in places such as NVRAM (PRAM in older Mac)

so you may go through a few things to sort this out. Or, Troubleshooting.

 

Good luck & happy computing!
