If that's the case, check that wiring to that sensor. It's located somewhere in the upper half of the differential housing.

If you wish to remove it, there's one bolt that holds it in place, and if you remove it, no oil will escape. Just be careful to clean around it first so dirt doesn't drop in the hole when you remove the sensor. You may find a bit of black, fuzzy, sooty material that has collected on it (it's magnetic), and sometimes just cleaning it is enough to restore operation. It's sealed with an O-ring, so be careful not to damage that when re-installing the sensor.

If you actually need a new one, they're relatively cheap at around $25 or so, but you may find a broken wire, too, and that may fix the whole thing.

Good luck!

If it comes back check the ECM connectors, the CC module, and the cluster connector one of them could have been knocked loose. Depending on your service they might have plugged directly into your harness at the ECM to check wiring and the ECM.

Would that plug have a cap on it that says "Data link connector''?

Yup, although some have blank caps, some have no caps at all.
