You likely have a short in the trackpad. Did you have a liquid spill or use a cleaner on the uppercase? Thats likely why you're encountering issues. You'll need to replace both the trackpad & the cable.

I have to change the flex again? I replaced by a new one but stills heating up the flex, should I have to change it again? With the trackpad ?


I would do both as you may have damaged it as well.


Thanks a lot I'm testing
