Hey How are you
Lets Try To Reset The moduke first in case it was a glitch
Master reset Procedure
1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .
2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go
3- Wait 15 minutes
4- Make sure all doors are closed
5- Reconnect battery Cables
6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start
if that don't work we will need a factory scanner ir equivalent to scan the touch screen module & retrieve fault codes.
in some case it will reset, some cases will have to upload software again & or completely replace it
Please let me know

no it want i m sorry , if you have a capable scanner you can clear it with the scanner , this manual procedure is when no scanner is available to do it with .
doing it this way will ensure all powers is off the modules including any residual power that stays in the harness for several minutes after switch off, touching cables together will kill all powers and hopefully module will reset , but if a defect exit in it , it will not make it work .
well that great man , i m glad it did it for you .
they don want us pulling harnesses off while power still on the car it might set fault codes. don't matter as long it worked for you :)
