WiFi and Bluetooth Antennas

After getting my MacBook back after the repair of my keyboard WiFi and bluetooth are not working any more. Is it possible that they damaged the antennas? Where is it located?

Where did you get it fixed and why was it in service to begin with?


I had the same happening to me. Apple replaced the keyboard twice, and the battery once, and after the battery bluetooth stopped responding.

I found a USB-C BT adapter that actually works, and no SW needed.

I was wondering if there's a chance applying heat, it might reseat or something.


@Eyvind Mondragon - The antenna is physical connector which might have been damaged or fatigued from all of the work done on your system. If you can I would get it re-repaired under the repair warranty otherwise your solution is the best you can do without digging deeper which may open up a hornets nest!

Is the antenna damaged:?

Is the cable end damaged?

Is the logic board connector damaged?

Is the chip damaged (needing a new logic board)


Dan, I'm a pretty good tinkerer myself.

So, I opened it and of course, I didn't see anything obvious. It took me almost a year and a half to find a BT dongle that worked.

I bought mine in 2016, and the last time I took it Apple refused to fix it (eventhough they broke it, but I can't prove it).

I went to the Houston Galleria Apple Store yesterday, and they want $678 to fix it. I asked the guy if he was aware that this was the worst laptop that Apple ever made, and of course the guy was trying to do his job.

He told me there were no recalls for this machine.

In the end, I just ordered the new $3,499 MacBook Pro 16 M1 Max a few minutes ago.

I'll have it hopefully by the second week of December once I figure out how to send it with a friend from the US to Nicaragua.

I guess a MBP TB 15 2016 with a failing display and no BT is not a good prospect for selling.

Thanks for your help. Maybe in a few blue moons, the displays will be around $100 or the machines themselves as no one wants them.

Solution retenue

The antennas are located in the lid assembly and connect to the logic board near the CPU. Here's two images which show the cables and the points they connect to. You could take the bottom cover off (which is harder than most) to check the connections on the logic board. I'm suspecting the logic board has a problem if the cables are connected. This series Bluetooth/WiFi adapter is part of the logic board (not a sub assembly)
