Hey all, a little while ago some soda spilled onto my center cluster thing with all the window controls and such. Now the rear sunscreen button is sticky when I depress it. How can I go about fixing this? Thanks!

You are darn lucky your transmission is not stuck in park; most people who spill liquids on that have much more serious issues than you have. Just take some mild soap on a wash rag and wipe off the switch.

More lucky than you know.

I'd actually pull the cover off, disconnect the battery and clean up not only the sticky switches, but the rest of the mess you can't see. Out of sight is not good and should not be out of mind.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

So just wipe down the switches with some mild soap and water? Or is there a better approach to this? And while I'm there I want to wire up my GPS and radar detector into the cigarette lighter internally. How could I go about doing this? Thanks!!

I was only talking about the external switches. Inside, you probably need some electrical contact cleaner.
