    I have a load cell which is interfaced with instrumentation amplifier in the differential mode. I want to have "sensor open" indication. I got a clue of connecting very high resistance (>1M) as a pull up and pull down to non-inverting and inverting terminals respectively. But didn't work.

    Could anybody give some idea?

    P.S. I am expecting IA to go in to saturation.

    As long as the inputs are common mode, then there won't be any amplification. You might be able to set up a resistive path to a voltage at just one input, but be careful it doesn't mess with the load cell response.
