I replaced my brake light switch on my 2003 explorer.Now the brake lights r inop and the truck wont go in gear

It was a different connection then the old one. I had to cut the wires and rewire the new connection. I got the part at auto zone and they said it was for this car. Instead of having my brake lights just stay on, now they dont work at all and I cant even drive it. please help.
