Another 13" MacBook Pro here with a keyboard which has stopped working. The issue is that it is all random, there is nothing consistent about it. I think all the things that "got it working" were a coincidence. At the moment I am having to use an external keyboard as none of the previous fixes are working. Aug 14, 2 0 10 0. The SMC reset worked a few times, but now it doesn't work at all.
PRAM never worked for me. I've even tried restoring my Mac, which caused me to download several OS versions, none in which worked. It's like my keyboard has selective-functioning. I haven't tried that yet, but it seems to be the only thing that's working, if we are all getting this for the same reasons and if it isn't the keyboard connector like the person above me said.

I also have a macbook pro 13 inch When I started it, it asked me to connect to a trackpad. Both the keyboard and trackpad stopped working. After connecting it with a wired mouse it worked again and I could boot in safe mode. Everything was fine. After 3 days it stopped working again.. Sep 19, 1 0 10 0. Same problem here. Freaking insane for a MacBook which is not even 2 years old. If your machine is still under warranty, you should let Apple do the work.
Did you find any of these simple solutions helped solve your problems, or was it something more serious? Here's how to remove dust from your keyboard and other settings to check that can fix your issue. Read More , we can help you fix that. Your email address will not be published. Helpful content My mouse is literally not working whatsoever, thus how am I supposed to click through the settings.. My curser keeps jumping around to random places and keep clicking random things when it's not supposed to.
Other times it will just lag My curser had jumped around 6 times and clicked 4 random things while I'm typing this. What should I do? Thank you for the tip!! My Trackpad seemed to have 'frozen' and wouldn't respond to two finger scroll, thus I couldn't scroll my email list or indeed the highlighted email itself, or any document for that matter, so I could only read to the bottom of the screen!!
Your very first tip to troubleshoot was to check updates and look for trackpad related updates not yet uploaded. There weren't any but there were some old various ones not uploaded. I clicked 'update all', the Mac shut down to install these and some old ones that apparently hadn't successfully uploaded, ten minutes later it came back on and Hey Presto, Trackpad working again!! Thank you! Why would this be?
My trackpad and keyboard have become completely unresponsive. Brought it to apple store twice now; first time they reseated cables and told me it was fixed but it wasn't. I can plug in my mouse and use the cursor but can't use keyboard Only power button works. As such I can't past password screen to try any of the recommendations in the article. This has been going on for 2 weeks now and apple store doesn't have any technicians at weekend.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Of course none of your simple options fixed my trackpad. I guess I must admit my machine is probably past it's useful life span. Trackpad works on the top, but not in the middle or bottom - sort of like me. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge, which has been very useful.
I had issue with tap to click since I installed OS Sierra and your solution above just worked for me.
2. Check Relevant Settings
Thank you. Come on guys!!! Who are we kidding??? The over-riding problem with Macbook trackpads is in their design. They accumulate all sorts of gunk around them and need to be thoroughly cleaned about once a year. This is a a really annoying problem and one that Apple seem to be in denial about.
Solving the problem requires the tricky operation of removing the trackpad, cleaning it and replacing it. Well done Apple Please get your heads out of the sand and fix this design fault. Spraying WD40 electronic contact cleaner non-conductive onto the sides of the trackpad may help temporarily. These seem like great suggestions, but none of them will work because my track pad is completely dead in the water! I can't click anything and it's not responding to the actual mouse that's connected either.
It was working great yesterday and now, nothing. I'm in the same situation as you. A USB connected mouse worked for me a couple of hours ago but now that one won't work either. It's like my Macbook has decided navigating should no longer be an option Basically the 'right click' doesn't function.

Just happened as I flew from Montreal to Chicago. Maybe the battery did the swelling thing or maybe being to rough with it over the years has taken its toll. Not fun to use without this funtion. My trackpad keeps trying to select things on my screen. It is as if I have clicked and dragged but i haven't and I can't "release" the click therefore can't click on anything else. Restarting my computer fixes it for a time but it seems to be getting worse.
