What is this flex cable attached to the battery chipset?
Im trying to look over a water damaged MacBook Pro w/ Touch Bar. I accidentally snapped of a flex-cable that seems to be attached to the battery chipset.
iFixit's breakdown YouTube video of the Late 2016 Touch Bar shows a clear picture of it:
Anyone knows what it is and does? Is it needed for the laptop to start?
Just to troubleshoot, do I need it? (The battery is probably gone anyway).
Also, Does the MacBook Pro w/Touch Bar start without a battery? (USB-C charger connected).
I can see that one USB-C module is fried (right one). Left one seems OK. Does it start with one side unplugged? I can see the part as replacement in the ifixit store. Great if I get the machine running again. :)
Battery specification: 020-01705 / A1819
Anyone? Thank you in advance!
