Default rear diff abs sensor

1999 Ranger 2.5L 4cyl 2WD... plain jane.

The GoPoint app on my phone gave me a code on the rear diff sensor, so I just bought a new one for a hopefully cheap, easy fix. Standard brand, about $15... Installed it, hopped in, ran down the road and the truck wouldn't shift out of 1st (while in D ) and the speedo wasn't working. Went back to the garage, reset the codes with my phone app, same results. Tried again by disconnecting the battery, same results. Bought another new part ( Dorman brand, I think ), same routine, same results. THe big kicker is after each new part, I reinstalled the original sensor ( a Ford part ) and everything worked fine ( but still with a code and check engine light resulting ).

My next idea is to get a new,genuine Ford part, but it just seems wrong that two new parts wouldn't solve the problem.

Thoughts, ideas and solutions much appreciated.
