cb3-111 not starting with battery on but starts when battery removed

Few months back my son spilled some juice on my acer chromebook (CB3-111-C8UB). The laptop is out of warranty. After that incident, I was not able to start it. But I observed when battery is getting fully discharged, then it is starting again. Then battery gets changed back to 100% and  I removed the power cable and it was running on battery fine.But after next shutdown (with recharged battery), it is not starting.

So I opened it and removed the battery and I was able to start it everytime (with battery removed). Everytime to start, I had to remove and reinsert the power cable and press the start button about 30 seconds to start it. Then I put the battery back it and first time it started up immediately but once I shut it down it is not restarting. I am planning to buy an aftermarket battery but not sure if battery is the problem or there may be something else going on. Will appreciate any advice.
