    Here are some places to start:

    Is the reservoir full? Do the hydraulic remotes still work? Any strange noises when you move the 3 pt lever? Does the lever move with the normal amount of force or does it move more easily? (perhaps the control linkage is broken/disconnected). Was the fluid contaminated with water which could now be frozen?

    You have a valve in your system that regulates how fast the hitch drops ---- if that's fully closed the hitch won't work. Most are located between your legs under the seat --- they get bumped accidentally and end up closed.
