Replaced battery after liquid damage, still does not recognize battery

I had a liquid spill on my laptop after which it stopped recognizing the battery. We replaced the battery with a replacement from iFixit, but even after doing so it still does not recognize the battery. I’ve reset the SMC and the PRAM but it had no effect. I ran a diagnostic (powered on the MacBook by holding P), and it indicated that there is no battery installed. Is there something else that I can try here, or did some board or chip get fried?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It probably means that the logic board has corroded. You’re lucky it turns on at all, take it in to a repair shop at some point and they can diagnose it.
