It thinks it's not moving. If u replaced the speed sensor on the trans then it's either the wiring got damaged or the pcm is messed up

The Tranny went out all the sudden while I was driving down the road ,I lost all gears including reverse,n the shifting cable broke at same time,could whatever caused all that to happen have damaged the speed sensor as well?
