Default Won't start

My '01 PT Cruiser won't start. Battery has a full charge and I can jump it; but won't start next time. It will click, click, click several times but not crank. Then nothing. There is also a liquid that pools underneath the right front of the engine. We did find a short in the fog light switch that was draining the battery so we just pulled the fuse out. Can you help me; and is this something I can fix myself or a mechanic? Thanks.

Two different problems. Remove the terminals and clean then try again.

Liquid under the right front could be the battery has a crack and it's draining fluid.

On my '05, the condensation from the air conditioning pools on the right side, just behind the front wheel.
