Spilled MacBook Air 13 2015 doesn't work without charger

Hello!

I have spilled MacBook Air 13 2015 with beer. I have disassembled it and cleaned it with cleaner and alcohol. There are no visible damages on boards.

It doesn't work without charger. However it sees battery. When it works with charger red light is on (not green).

Just needs the battery. Whenever the battery status is showing "replace now" or "service battery", etc, the issue is with the battery, nothing else.
