Hi. Measure voltage on battery, not connected in the car. If new and full, it should have at least 12,5V. If voltage under 12V try to charge it with charger, but there is a possibility it is bad/wasted.

The battery you have sounds slightly under-powered - do you have your vehicle VIN so I can check what you should have?
