2001 S-500 conductor plate opportunity

Hello Fellow MB Friends. I have replaced the electrical adapter on my s-500. It was not leaking, however the electrical plug did drop trans fluid when I removed it from the connector mounted on the transmission. I did spray the plug with electrical contact cleaner, let dry for 4 hours, reconnected plug. The dash will not display transmission gear selection, (P,R,N,D), and is in low gear. The following day I went back to take another look at the plug. I disconnected the plug and it leaked trans fluid. I checked to make sure the O-rings were in place. The O-rings are okay. Is it possible the conductor plate has failed and is the cause of my problem?
