Multiple Issues - Microphone, Camera, & Wifi

Hey guys. Thanks for taking a look and helping me out in advance.

I am having some issues with my MacBook Pro, 13" Unibody (2009 Model - MacbookPro5,5). The computer is functioning fine after a recent light coffee spill. These issues include: "No Airport Card installed", internal microphone not working, and the built-in iSight not recognized. I have taken the device apart multiple times, and the Airport card looks like it is in mint shape. I am not sure, I think it may be a cabling issue... I don't know if they are all connected or what. Any ideas on how I can get this resolved? Think it could be an issue with the logic board itself? Any insight would be very helpful. Thanks again!

Yes'' when you spill liquid into a laptop you can pretty much expect logic board damage. Sounds like you could have corrosion on connectors. Run the AHT 2 or 3x's. It may identify problems. If cleaning hasn't helped so far, more wont be likely to either. You might work around the problems with USB dongles for wifi and audio.'' Otherwise you'll have to replace the logic board.
