Internal Keyboard & Trackpad not working after repair
It‘s my first time posting here.
I currently have problems with my MacBook Pro (15" Mid-2015).
So basically I replaced the battery on my MBP.
It took quite some time to get the glue out of the old battery, but other than that, it was quite easy.
Once I finished I booted the MB up and noticed both the Trackpad and Keyboard won‘t work anymore.
I used a external KB & M to log-in and see what the problem is.
I also noticed that the backlight of the keyboard still light up and that I can‘t click on the trackpad.
As you can see in the photo of about this Mac, the driver (or whatever it is) shows up for the KB/M.
Power button is the only key which works.
The flex cable is inserted properly, I‘ve checked it multiple times already.
If I disconnect the flex cable, the driver won‘t show up anymore in about my Mac and the backlight won‘t light up. Does that mean my flex cable is OK? Or should I replace it?
Tried SMC/PRAM reset, no luck (don‘t even know if it worked successfully, can‘t check, attempted it with both internal & external KB).
I read on forums that on this specific model the trackpad is also connected to the KB and that‘s why both of them don‘t work, is that true and could my trackpad be dead?
I have the feeling that the fans also go to 100% now.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this issue?
Should I buy a replacement trackpad or flex cable?
If so, how can I get the new glued battery out without damaging it as it‘s over the trackpad? :/
Thanks to everyone ! :^)
The solution to my problem was the trackpad, I had to replace it, I think some liquid got in there while cleaning the adhesive of the battery on the bottom and that‘s why it got defective. Using a credit card I was able to get the new battery out easily, and I even reused the adhesive of it.
I bought a genuine trackpad and it instantly worked, fans aren‘t on 100% now either. The old flex cable still works.
I think it‘s still possible to fix the old trackpad though but I didn‘t wanna go too far with this repair.
Cette question est-elle utile ?
I've had similar issues. Stupidly enough, I had forgotten to close the latch for the cable near the case. Did you double-check that already?
@rhoshy Do you mean this?

I‘ve already checked it multiple times and it‘s closed correctly. :/
