My guess is that you got saltwater inside the camera on the circuit boards.
When it dries there is no conduction, but when you go outside the humidity condenses on the cold camera and the slat tracks become wet and conduct.
Canon might be able to clean it if you send it in for service.

Got the same problem after a trip down into a cold volcano. All my buttons went mad. I dried it and everything worked again. In your case, you have got salt water inside. Don't know if Canon is able to clean it out for you, but you should ask.

Water and a camera usually do not do well together. Salt water and a camera is usually a death sentence. Actually a dunk in salt water best next step is a dunk in clean water.
The rice and other methods are not very good. Very marginal at best. My preffered way is a heating pad for several days. Set it to low and leave it for a long time.
The 6D is not particularly well protected from water almost to the point of, don't get it wet! If the heating pad does not work, you probably lost the camera.

"Salt water and a camera is usually a death sentence."
I don't know that I would even spend a couple hundred bucks on it. Are you sure nothing else inside is damaged. Salt water is bad newes for a camera.
