I am not that familiar with this model, but try brining the vehicle inside to "Thaw it out". Warmer than 45 degrees. If that does not work, then sounds like the actuator has gone bad. Your front actuator (changes from rear wheel only to 4wd) might be frozen or worn out.

The problem is, is there is no garage. What do actuators go for?
