Cleaning Interior vinyl trim - color comes off and dries sticky.

Maybe you can help with this one. I have a 2001 e46 convertible with the sand interior. I was cleaning the vinyl around the seat belt holders (on the top of the front seats) and around the door speakers. I noticed that my cloth was stained the sand color, and the surface of the vinyl was sticky when it dried. I used Vinylex. The more I applied it, the more color came off and the surface remained sticky when dry. Any idea why it does this? And how do I clean it so it isn't sticky?

Maybe someone at some point dyed your seats. I see no reason why stock dye would come off

Thanks for the idea, but it's not the seat, it's the trim. And also around the door speaker. Nothing was ever dyed as far as I know. I'm the original owner.
