Spill 91% alc/Keybrd replaced/logic board wrks/Pwr bttn still not work

My beautiful A1278 Macbook Pro mid 2012 13" had 91% alcohol spilled on it and it sat in the alcohol, inside a bag, for a day. (I was trying to kill its Ebloa.)

The back panel was taken off and everything was carefully dried as much as possible. (I gave it a blow job with compressed air.) It didn't power up until magsafe charger was plugged in. The inside row of keys did not work (a-row of keys and z-row of keys) and power button did not work.

After a few days, most of the a-row and z-row of keys started working but still no power button. (This whole time the back light on the keys was working but no light for the power button). The only way to turn on mac was to the unplug battery, plug in magsafe charger and then it would turn itself on. **After turning on, I could run the computer on just the battery so it is not that.

Finally replaced the keyboard and to my dismay power button is still not working AND the "i" key and shift key not working. (I am crying inside)

I tried SMC reset, but since the left hand side shift not working, tried right hand shift, nothing. Tried smc reset by unplugging battery and holding power button for 10 sec, didn't work. Annd to double check it is not the logic board I shorted the power pads and it started up.

So if there is a GOD please, please help me find a solution. I cannot keep unplugging and plugging in my battery and hating my life. Thank you.

I'm trying to figure out what the bad parts are. Any suggestions? Don't want to do each piece and turn around and find out I need a whole new logic board and end up paying double to find that out.
