So the question is… Is the TouchBar or the cable between the logic board and the TouchBar the issue?

You could try replacing the cable MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Late 2016-2019) Touch Bar Display Cable it’s a fair amount of work. Otherwise the TouchBar OLED panel it’s self is bad MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Late 2016-2017) Touch Bar Assembly which is much harder to replace.

@shermyg - I'm sure bseth got things working, likely just needed a new cable and the driver logic within it likely failed.
