Default Spilled soda in console, what should I do?

Hello, I have a 2016 Z51. A few months ago I spilled a cup of soda all over my console due to slamming on the brakes when somebody cut me off. My dad gave me some electronic spray that day and I sprayed a lot in the stereo buttons hoping it would dissolve the soda and keep it from getting sticky inside but now that it's cold weather and I'm noticing the buttons are getting very stiff, so it didn't work.

The button to start the car is the most stiff. Can anybody recommend anything else or what I should do? Maybe a different kind of spray that's safe for that? I never had this problem before. Thanks for any help.

There is a dude selling an entire dash with all the buttons for like $200 in the for sale section. I'd buy that and replace them all.


If it is JUST the start button PM me, I have a spare. If you need more than that (sounds like you do), buy that dash!

Disassemble it and clean it thoroughly. If you can't clean it, replace it. The work is time consuming, but it's not very difficult. There's plenty of spare parts available on eBay and other places.
