Default my car wont start or turnover rom the ignition

i have a 2001 PT Cruiser, and just a couple days ago I got into an accident. I reared endeda car(tacoma pick up truck) going about 10-15mph. my car front was dented in about 4 inches. Right after the impact my car wouldnt move/drive. I turned the key then off and on and the car wouldnt even attempt to turnover or make a SOUND.
after dismantling it, the front fender has to be replaced, radiator, air conditioning, but the car still won't start. I am wondering if the computer may be bad or what? please help me

also my mechnic said he tried started the car from the starter underneaththe car but it wont get a spark, any suggestions????????
I also hit the transmission control module, is that maybe why it wont start?

I have a 2004 PT Cruiser. I recently drove it and everything was fine. I let it sit for two days and it would crank but not start up, and I jumped it and gave it some gas and it started. I let it run for a while, and the next morning it started up fine, however an hour later it would not start again. Yesterday I tried again and it would not crank, just clicking noise. The power is weakening every time I try to start it. I cleaned my battery terminals and cables, and tested my battery at 97% GOOD! What could be my problem, any takers??
