08 Corolla...needs new parts, dealer claims it's totaled

As the title States my car had some freak thing happen where the dealership is saying I need the main engine room wire harness and the instrument panel wire harness, part numbers 82141-02j73 and 82111-02d41. The airbags are not working because of it. They thought it was mice but it's not, they think maybe corrosion of some sort..? They're quoting me at over $4,800. This is a worst case scenario and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get the price down, if it's possible to have these harnesses fixed, get something off brand, junkyard or anything. I'm pretty desperate. Thanks guys. -Luke

Wires and harness are hard to fail but they do fail sometimes, I would check a junk yard to see if you can find harness or just try to look online for it, I would never go to a dealer to fix my car their prices are crazy high, go to a local mechanic that does electric work on cars and they will fix it for a lot less.
