Update...
So I couldn't find the products that were mentioned... So I picked up some Resolve carpet/upholstery cleaner.
Lightly sprayed the headliner (the seats must be stain resist because the seats didn't have any stains on them from the Coke Zero) and let it sit for the three minutes, as per the directions.
Grabbed a cloth and gently, as was suggested on here, rubbed the headliner.

SUCCESS!

I am probably going to do a little more as there is a line left that you can see, but it did a pretty good job cleaning that mess up. Relieved, I am.

Yep, was all fixed up. Took the truck through car wash tonight... Now I have a brake light out. Dash shows passenger rear light, but it's the cab brake light that's out.
Found in another thread that the trailer brake control and the cab brake light are on the same fuse... I have a lit hitch cover that plugs into the trailer plug. Pulled that out and the connector was soaked. Figuring I probably blew a fuse. Will check in the daylight. :/

Heh, after doing some trouble shooting (leaving for last, the easiest simplest thing to do *facepalm*) the 3rd brake light bulb is actually broken. Funky funky.
Going to try and find a replacement LED locally...

Ok... Now I'm getting confused.
So I bought some LEDs. Put em in and the 3rd brake light lights up... But I still get the graphic on the EVIC saying the passenger rear light is out. All three brake lights and turn signals work.
One thing I did notice when I was troubleshooting, I took one of the incandescents from the cargo light and put it in the 3rd brake light and it lit up - but after a minute of being on the bulb was hot enough to burn my finger when I took it back out.

Is that normal? Or do I have an abnormal amount of current going through that bulb? Now that I think about it, that broken bulb - if you look at the pic - looks heat damaged, doesn't it?

What fuse would that 3rd brake light be on? I took a look at fuse box, but I don't see anything listed that jumps out at me as being the fuse for that. Just want to check the fuse on it...

The carpet and upholstery can be cleaned the same way, being generous with the foam, working it into the material with a very SOFT natural bristle brush (never use a stiff brush on upholstery since it will damage it), then use the shop vac to remove all the residue. The key is to use a shop vac/carpet cleaner to remove whatever cleaning solution from the material being cleaned. Been in the auto restoration / detailing business since 1982 and have found this to be fool proof.
Big Red is absolutely correct! This stuff is not only priced right, but the best product for cleaning up stains.....if it can clean dog stains, no problem with soda. This can be found in numerous stores as well.
