Question: Trackpad not working properly after left click

My Macbook Pro's trackpad stops working properly after i use the left click it.

This started some days ago and I can't find any threads about it online.

Basically the cursor starts to stutter and left-clicks randomly on it's own. It's pretty much uncontrollable.

When I close the Macbook and open it again, the problem is fixed. But only until i use the left click again.

Has anyone ever had this problem? It seems weird to me that closing and opening the laptop fixes the problem.

Any help is highly appreciated!

I've already tried the following things:
- reset SMC

- boot in safe mode

- create new user account

- apple hardware check (everythings fine)

Nothing seems to fix it yet. Any ideas?

I heard people saying it could be the batterie, but in that case closing and opening the Macbook shouldn't fix

the problem like it does for me, right?

Maybe it's the trackpad itself? A loose cable?

I'm out of ideas. :/
