Unfortunately you can't replace just the ribbon cable. The ribbon cable that plugs into the control module is only sold as part of the entire touch control panel which is most likely not made anymore if the unit was made in 2002 so you can try to look on Ebay for one, but otherwise it may be time for a new oven at this point.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
