    did you check the fuses?? i would start there.
    yes, it could be wiring but without seeing it, we cannot give you an estimate.

    take it to a shop for a bid and then shop around.

    Everything Roy said.

    An added thought....wiring connector is probably damaged from overheating at the switch. Figure less than $100 to replace the pigtail harness.
