I've read elsewhere that sometimes, the rain causes shorts and conduction in the radio controls in the center console.

If you still hear something from the radio, maybe you need to take the tupperware off and start drying the controls (hair dryer?).
I doubt the handlebar controls have an issue, but the center console might.

Good luck!

The little rubber buttons crack with age and let the rain in. Best to open it up and clear water and any corrosion out.

Have not tried it but maybe a thin application of silicon seal on the inside of each button might do it.
