Unplugged Mass Air Flow Sensor

2013 FPIS This past weekend I blew out my air box and air filter. To take the air filter out I unplugged the mass air flow sensor to give more room. But I mistakenly forget to plug it back in before starting the car. The wench and the Trac Control lights came on and realized what I forgot. I shut it off and plugged it back in. Now the car doesn't feel the same kind of sluggish and I don't think the AWD is kicking in. Could the senor being unplugged then car started cause this. Hope this makes sense.

I did the same thing. Disconnect the battery for a while and make sure the maf is plugged in well. Thats what "reset" the car for me.
