It could still be one of the wires in/to the plug that is faulty. If in the initial incident the wires were "stretched" in any way you could now have an "open circuit" wire as the wires may have brken off inside- if this wire is faulty the circuit won't be complete and the folding part of the circuit won't work. This could be the missing piece of the jigsaw. The wire may look ok from the outside.
How long was the wiring left exposed to the elements? If water/dirt got in the contacts may now be corroded.
It is very difficult to diagnose and repair faults without actually seeing the patient - sorry.
