PS5 controllers not connecting to console, only work intermittently when using cable

Ps5 controllers wont connect to the console. When the controllers are plugged in they occasionally work, but also button inputs are occasionally being repeated. Have tried multiple controllers, one of which is new, and several cables. ps5 has been reset, and the controllers do work in normally with a wired connection in safe mode.

note this PS5 was repaired from lightning damage, initially it had no video, had to replace HDMI filter, HDMI chip, HDMI port, and all components on the ethernet port as they were blown as well.

has anyone else experienced this? would it be the wifi bluetooth module?
