Default heater, radio, wippers, turn signal stop working. fuses are ok

I was riding to work this morning and on the highway out of nowhere the radio, the heater , the wippers , the turn signals went out. My rear defrost and wiper works , the gauges work fine , dashboard lights work as well...

I checked the fuse under the hood, everything is good, checked a couple fuses under the dash (blower, radio, turn signal) and everything is also good.

what's going on ? I need help ! don't want to drive back home with no heater !

Default ignition switch

my 1987 did the same thing when i bought it, it turned out to be the ignition switch thats mounted on the bottom of the steering column, one of the wires was corroded over and the switch was melted so nothing was turning on. $12.99 for one at autozone.

yeah the ignition switches from what ive read are proned to corrode... not the switch where your keys go in but the switch down further on the steering column...

What does this switch look like ? It does make sence because all the options that can only be on when they keys are on are not working. Everything else is fine. Appreciate in the info , thanks !!
