X1 Carbon 1st Gen battery plugged in not charging

My thinkpad x1 sometimes does not charge at all. It shuts down if I remove the power cable. Normally it does this every two or three charges, but now is stuck at 14% and it will not charge. 


I have tried everything, reinstall, install drivers. Reseted from the back. Nothing! If I remove the power, it will shut down.


After reinstalling the Power Manager it now shows: "The battery has failed to normal wear". That cannot be, because just a few hours ago it kept for four hours. The battery is quite four years old, with roughly 1800 cycles, but nevertheless it used to work just fine. 



I cannot also access the support site for any drivers, it redirects me to my country  and of course it does not have anything for a population of 3 milion (maybe 100 Lenovos for the total population). Those supporters at Thinkpad must be very stupid to even think about using the location for redirection.
