The first thing to do would be to soak up any excess fluids. If the problem persists, then the console would need to be removed to clean out the fluids and see if components can be cleaned, or need to be replaced. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run an inspection of your electrical problems to identify and quote the repairs needed.
