Today I switched out batteries on my Macbook Pro 2015 15 inch A1398. After I was done I noticed my trackpad doesn't give me feedback or lets me click/select text.

My searches have so far not found anything similar, so that's why I'm reaching out.

I performed an SMC reset, ran diagnostics, with no result. did the other things nothing is working

So all I'd like to know what can the problem be, and how can I solve it?

-I have verified that the trackpad is connected.

-I am using the MACOS 12.6

-Yes i also checked the settings for trackpad and feedback but nothing changed there

Unfortunately, it sounds like you've damaged either your trackpad cable or the trackpad itself during the battery removal/installation process. You're going to want to try replacing the cable first as it is very easily accessible on your model (the cable running over the middle of your battery) & if that doesn't make a difference, replace the trackpad itself which you will need a T5 screwdriver for. Hope this helps.
