Have you checked the battery with a volt meter? First thing I would do is check for low voltage on the pack, that could very easily cause it to go crazy, or maybe a short in the pack that would give a strange rating.

Is the pack puffed at all or damaged any way? Have you tried your old battery since you have used the new one does the problem still go away?

In any case I would store the pack outdoors in a fire proof container just in case there is a short or other damage since there is a chance the damaged pack could catch fire. Advise the local model shop that the pack is potentially damaged as well when you return it.
