Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may simply have a blown fuse, wiring may not have been repaired properly, or damage to components may have been done. It really shouldn't happen due to wiring being pinched, but it's possible that the wireless control module was damaged.

What wires specifically were pinched?

Have fuses been checked?
