CD/tape/radio question

Hi, My mom has a Hyundai Santa Fe (I know I know, I was pushing for a domestic after she said no to a hot rod or custom) and she was taking me to the eye doctor and I had a cup of cranberry juice with me and I picked it up, but the sweat from the glass was so plentiful that I dropped the glass in the car and got cranberry juice on her middle console where all the buttons are, and where the cd player/tape player/and radio are. This all happened like a month ago, and I cleaned it and tried to clean the sides of the the buttons with a tootpick doused in glass plus. Yesterday we were in my moms car listening to a cd and she showed me the equalizer thing and when she pressed it it got stuck from the cranberry juice and now we can't get the cd out, and every button we push just equalizes it to rock, jazz, pop, news, etc. Does anyone now how I can get the panel off and really give it a good cleaning?TIA


P.S. Sorry for long post

I Don't know how to remove the panel but You might be able to spray electrical contact cleaner, (it comes in a spray can), directly to the face and buttons. I use it on anything electronic and it won't short any circuits. It cleans well and as far as I know it won't damage most plastics or any other surface. Its harmless to printed circuit boards anyway.


Make sure the power is removed from the unit before you clean with the contact cleaner and give it few minutes to evaporate before restoring power.

Disconnecting the battery ground would be the best thing to do.

The cleaner evaporates quickly but make sure you catch any runoff.
