Keyboard issue: occasionally letters are doubled when typing

I inherited a 2017 macbook pro13" with retina display.

I've cleaned the keyboard pretty thoroughly and was not able to find a hardware reason for this.

I've reset the SMC, tinkered with the keyboard settings in Preferences, and there was no effect on the issue.

Any ideas on what else I could do?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Does it have a TouchScreen just above the keyboard keys? That way we can correctly ID which version as Apple produced two 13” models in 2017.

Ok, that’s helpful! Given the age of the system I’m suspecting the keyboard cable is getting squeezed from the battery. I’m guessing it’s after it’s been running a bit or when the battery is under charge.

It does not have a touch screen - instead it has f1/f2/f3/f4 etc.
