MacBook Air 820-3437 with Gatorade spilled on it

Today another unfortunate Mac with major Gatorade spilled on top of the keyboard that leaked inside the logic board.

Tested power lines. Missing SMC_RESET_L with no short. Checked all the inputs on U5110 and are OK but no output SMC_RESET_L.

Replaced the chip and problem remained.

After further testing I concluded it was bad SMC. Replaced and it powered on.
