Water Damage

Customer brought in a mabook pro that a cup of water was dropped on it. After I dried it out, the laptop fans turn on for 2 seconds then turn off. Any idea's on what to change? maybe the battery?

Drying it out will not solve anything, at least not permanently. Take it apart and clean it with denatured alcohol. Take the board and put it inside a bowl full of denatured alcohol and seal it. Leave it there for 30 minutes, take it out, let it dry and install it again.

Take out the battery and hard drive. Most likely the data will still be good. The battery, you'll have to examine.
If it won't power on, most likely you'll need to replace the logic board.

On the outside look you will not understand. It is necessary to check the circuit, check whether the battery is working correctly, dry all the boards and wipe with alcohol. The main thing is to protect the motherboard from moisture and dry it well.
