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.
