Are the wires actually severed and flapping around? Do your axles not lock? Are the front and back the same? Mine have several wraps of tape around them just before they enter the brass fittings. This is normal and you should apologize to the PO.

FWIW, I don't think the sensor wires can simply be unplugged.

If they are cut I'd be questioning if the lockers function or are even in the diffs.
