OK. All the fuses look good. The switch is what I would have suspected first instead of a fuse. Is it possible for me to change out the switch without special tools? If I need to pay a bonus for you to tell me how to fix this I'll be more than happy to.
I'm very good at electrical and fine work.
Ok, my mistake for some reason I looked up a 1990 corolla. Yes on the 2000 the main switch is part of the lever type switch assembly, the air bag has to be removed and then the steering wheel, the witch has three small screws attacing it. Here is the procedure:
Disconnect the battery, wait 90 seconds, remove two small plastic covers on the side of the steering wheel, the airbag is connected with two torx bolts, I believe #35, it requires a torx socket to remove and a short extension and a ratchet, once the air bag is off disconnect the electrical connectors from it, remove the 19mm nut on the steering wheel, grab the wheel and wiggle it side to side to remove it from the splined shaft, the switch can then be removed.
