Trackpad click doesn't work, but tap does.

So this randomly started happening today that my Trackpad doesn't respond to clicks. It does sometimes if I mash it, but mostly it doesn't. The weird thing about this is that my tapping and swiping is working perfectly fine. I've never realized how much I click and drag things before now.

My Macbook Pro is getting old and is from 2009, if that matters.

inb4: I've checked my System Preferences (which are normal) and have restarted my Mac.

Try to Reset Your PRAM to see if that helps.

Didn't work, but good to know something like that exists.

I have a standalone trackpad on my iMac, and it gets stuck in the down position from time to time, and when it does, I have symptoms like yours.

Usually mashing on various locations on the pad will get it to pop back up.

It doesn't happen often, nor do I have that problem on 2 other MBP trackpads that I have.

In my case, it clearly feels stuck mechanically.
