Backup-light Switch

I accidently pulled the plug end off of the backup-light switch when I took the AX15 out of my Jeep this week. I was thinking about soldering the wires back into the plug, but wondered if it mattered which wire went into which socket. It is the "transmission side" of the plug that you disconnect on the passenger side of the tranny [the switch is still screwed into the transmission, it now just has two loose wires hanging out of it]. A new one [at the only auto parts store in town that carries them] is about $75 and I just do not want to spent that kind of money for a switch right now. Any ideas.....

It doesn't matter which pin you connect each of the wires to.

Of course you could always just cut both connectors off the wires and connect the wires directly to each other.
