i have spent the last hour trying to search for a replacement touch screen for a 7" display for a car stereo and all i get is damn cell phone screen repair WTF !

can anyone here help me find a source for these touch screens ?
at 1st i thought the display was busted, but only the touch screen is.

the screen i have has the flat cable at top middle of screen.
4 wire flat cable , i am sure they are all about the same.
only markings on screen in a corner (ZB-048)

This wouldn't happen to be one of those touch screens that controls the Radio, Phone, HAVC, WIFI, and other functions.

Your pretty much SOL, because these are specialized units.

Maybe you can find the break in the cable, and use liquid trace repair on it.
{Though, that may be impossible, if the break is in a spot that is not accessible.} :(

Had the Radio go out on a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica.
Went to the dealer, since it was still under warranty.
They yanked out the old radio/control center, and replaced it with a new unit.
But what took the tech the most time was connecting it up to a Laptop, and setting it up for the vehicle.
Ended up going back to the dealer later.
Because the settings were still off for the transmission control module, which made it shift funny.
Turns out the tech used settings for a 5-Speed transmission, instead of a 6-Speed.

In any case, you may need to check an auto salvage yard for one.

Good luck.

Janitor Tzap >>> it is actually an aftermarket car radio touch screen display, it is the touch screen glass that is broke, not the display screen..

Who is the maker, or what is the brand of the after market radio?

It's a long shot.....
But you might try tracking down a schematic for the radio.
It may have enough information, for the type of touch screen overlay panel that is used in the radio.
This may help in matching it too something DigiKey has.
