Beer spill, battery & ssd shot
I dismantled & cleaned everything. There was sticky flow residue running from left side of logic board from vent down to battery. Slight greenish corrosion on keyboard backlight terminal, but otherwise looked in decent shape. None of the moisture damage indicators have turned red on the logic board, but the battery PCB is bright red & won't charge nor run from battery. She won't boot from the SSD, but will boot from an external drive. SSD gets immediately too hot to touch, and the fan runs at max velocity. Also, the fan won't run w/ SSD removed. My DIY dilemma is determining whether the PCIe circuit has been compromised. I don't want to install a replacement SSD if there's a possibility of frying another drive. Anyone able to test if fan starts at boot w/o SSD? Not an electronics guy & having brain pain from trying to decipher schematic. Lots of nearly microscopic stuff in there. Sheesh!
Is this a good question?
