Sorry to read of your troubles....
And, while I think you've gotten the correct answers, I'd also confirm these with Raymarine
And no, I do not think it will work properly, without the rudder sensor working....but...
Are you sure that the "control head" and "rudder reference sensor" are both bad??? And, the corepak / course computer is fine???

I would caution you to make sure that the course computer is working correctly, and that all of your troubles are with the other components, before you spend the money
(because my first thought is a wiring
issue, or a corepak issue....unless you've already eliminated those as possible issues...the rudder reference sensor is just a resistor....and I've only seen control heads go "bad" when the other things caused them to, such as lightning
Good luck...and Fair winds...
