I had the same problem and finally found the the right stuff to clean the sticky center console. My wife's nail polish remover. It took off a thick coat of sticky junk. It took some time but now I feel like I have a new car. The specific brand that I used in case they're not all the same was: Adios 100% Pure Acetone - nail sovent.

Try sanitizing wipes that what I use on my cb when it gets nasty. Just be careful not do use it when your car is sitting in direct sunlight. The alcohol will dry up fast and look bad.

a lot of that stuff can leave cracks in your dashboard so i'd be careful. only clean little parts at a time and see what happens so u don't screw up the whole part that you're cleaning.

Default Sticky Air Bag cover fixed with powder

I have a 2003 Civic with a very sticky/gummy Air Bag Cover. I tried cleaning it with alcohol, and while black stuff came off onto a white terry cloth rag, the cover remained sticky. So I put a little Gold Bond body powder on the rag, and spread it thinly over the sticky cover. It still looks pretty black, and is no longer noticeably sticky. Hopefully that will last another 13 years.
