There are many solvents available commercially. Just unplug your battery, let it sit for an hour, then clean it with proper solvent, leave it for at least 4-5 hours in room temperature, plug it back. How far it will go in solving your issues will depend upon extent of damage.
No they didnt tell me what wires/circuits etc, they said they THINK that could be the problem. But I would have to pay $750 for them to even find out. So im not even sure if that is the problem, and I some what doubt it is since no one has spilled anything in my car. And since im the only one that drives my car I think I wouldve noticed a spill.

And by the way thanks for everyones input. But does anyone know of anything else that could cause these kinds of problems besides the spillage???
