I have a macbook air 2012 which suffered a liquid damage.

i cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol . .

The macbook air boots with the following issues now . .

1. Battery comes with a cross icon( checked the battery on a another MBA 2012, the battery comes up and charges fine on this one).

2. MBA is very slow , there was some liquid on SSD also which i cleaned.

i also had a check on the SSD by inserting it into a working MBA , the MBA started booting dead slow . . . so there seems to be a issue in SSD.
I suspect some issue with the SATA controller that we on the SSD . . .

I am looking for some test points that i can measure and determine the faulty component on the logicboard.

any help appreciated :)
