Has anyone else had a problem with ice coffee or cold soda, placed in the cup holder, sweating through the plastic cup and onto the radio? Now my radio won't scan and plays only static. Even the WB won't work (always get the weather). Is there a quick fix or am I looking for a new one? 2000 slk230SportKomp 114k

It'll be condensation surely, in humidity? I can see how it'd be an issue.

If your cupholder is unbroken I'll trade you a dash tray for it, I assume they're a straight swap over ;)

As for the radio, I'd assume there's some corrosion - but to ensure it's fully dry, remove it and put it in a dry, warm place for 24-48 hours. You could probably blast some electrical contact cleaner around the buttons, too, but be careful of the display.
