Where are the power-on pads?

Hi there, I have a Macbook Air mid 2012 - 11 inches model - a1465, I drop a beer on it and after a couple days still won't turn on.

I've unmount everything and let it dry for a week. Now I want to power on but the keyboard doesn't work, if I connect the charger the light stay grey... Maybe the battery is charged so I want to try using a little cable for make a bridge and turn it on but I don't know where are the pads on the ELEVEN inches.

I saw in this great site a lot of picture but they describe just the old models or the 13"..

Please help me!

You'll find that on more recent models they stopped with the pads - from the ribbon cable connector block you have to '''short short pin 5 to pin 29 or ground'''.

Clean the logic board before attempting to start (you can do more damage force starting like this).

I've tried but nothing happen. With a multimeter I've checked that the I/O board take the electricity and transfer it to the logicboard with the black cable but the charger (that works) keep the led grey. There's a way to check in which part the electricity stops?

There's a way to check if the keyboard works? Maybe my mac needs just a SMC reset... How can I reset it without the keyboard?

Please help me
