Hi!

About a week ago, I spilled some water from the cup holder, not alot. It dripped down the front panel.

the radio went dead, but came back on a few minutes later.

Yesterday, while driving, all of sudden there was this really strong burning smell, like rubber, and this intermittent hissing noise.

A day later, the burning smell is still there but very light, and the hissing sound happens when the heater is turned on.

went to the dealer yesterday, no openings, scheduled for next wednesday. Was told probably not urgent since not lights coming on.

Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

thank you!

Opps, did you not read thaat you never use the cup holders. The will put there for looks and not to use. Spills are going to happen and liquids and electric compontions do not play well together.
