2005 nissan frontier 4wd will not lock in

This nissan has worked fine since i bought it 8 months ago, until about 2 months ago I wrecked it. A car ran into the front passenger side of my truck. [yes i ran a stop sign. it means to stop, not slow down.] Since i got it back from the body shop it has not worked at all (4WD). I did not notice until one day i was hunting and needed my 4wd. when i went to lock it in, it just blinked like it was trying to engage but never did. It will blink on and off all day. but since i have not noticed it 2 months, the body shop will say, it was working when it left. My question is, did they forget to plug something in, or did a sensor fail or what could cause it not to lock in. Its like you are trying to engage at 30 mph and it has to slow down to engage, but i was stopped completly. I bought a hanes manual but cant find out anything. PLEASE HELP. THANKS A MILLION.

If you have turned the lock tabs until they click in or out which ever the case may be for 4wd drive then maybe the transfer case is not selecting 4wd If it is vacuum actuated or electronic operation I would be checking their actions be for e I went any further.

How do I recharge the air condition on my 2000 nissan frontier?

If it needs to be charged,it has a leak & is poluting
the atmosphere

Therfore it need to be leak tested,system repaired,
a vacuum pump attached & the system vacuumed
dry,then properly recharged

You have no way to add & know what is in there
or being put in

You need A/C Manifold Gauges just to check the system
operation & charge correctly.

Charging may not be the issue at all

Need it diagnosed by a person train in A/C repair

Indicator lights coming on randomly

Run a trouble code test on the computer, Kragen auto and others do this for free, I think you may have a bad transmission speed sensor, the code will tell the story.
