After having body work done on the front end TPMS failure?

Unfortunately i was in an accident recently. I have tried to search the forums but nothing is coming up that seems to apply to my situation. After having front end work done (bumper/hood/headlight replaced) my TPMS have malfunctioned? Is this just a coincidence or is there any connection? Any suggestions for a fix?

Thanks!

I vaguely remember someone saying there is a connector by the fog lights that was left disconnected. They asked what it could be for and it was related to the same issue as you. Drivers side if I am correct . Don't forget to reset the tpms after using the stalk button.

You might wanna check the tpms receiving unit locating on each fender liner. It is possible they forgot to plug it back in during the repairs.
