Did you break one of the ECM connector mechanisms?

yes the lever lifted and bottom of plug started up then the plastic tab on top broke. Back of plug came off to expose wires but connector did not disengage.

Which one is it in relation to the cab? Closest, center, or furthest toward the front of the truck? I’ve got part numbers for one of them, can probably get the rest of them as well.

You can still remove the plug, you’ll just need to use a screwdriver and push down on both of the gray sliding/locking mechanisms while pulling out on the plug. Definitely need to be gentle with them, as you found out, they break easily.

I’ve got part numbers for the two smaller ones, but not the bigger one toward the cab. I’ll look around a bit more, I’m pretty sure your local dealer could order one in for you.

Take a flathead screw driver and looking down on top of connected on each side youll see the top part of the grey tabs the lock it in place. if you gently/carefully push them down youll know when the connector disengages. I broke one of the connectors tabs, and theats how I got the connector off. edge recommends blowing compressed air around them to clean out any dirt in the channels that the lock the connector in place to prevent exactly this issue
