The center differential can not transfer power to the front when the rear driveshaft is removed. You must have also fried the vicious coupling. Time for a new car or driveline.

My car still drives fine it’s only one wheel with power tho could there be any other reasons

Open differentials will spin one tire in slippery conditions.
