Default Reverse lights inop

I have a 98 sc2 5 speed. The shift cables broke a few months ago so I replaced them with the cables from my old car (96 sl1) and since then the reverse lights haven't worked. Could the cables not be the same? Because they bolted right in

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Could also be the switch itself is bad and it's just coincidence.
