If it looks the same it probably is the same; you'd need to splice the wires in, no easy plug and play.
You might want to do a search on here for my post about fixing one of these switches. Someone recently found it and was working on such a repair.
What I discovered in mine was, rain I guess thru an open window or maybe road slush had over time sat inside the switch and caused corrosion, electrolysis I guess, on one of the key traces on the small circuit board inside it, deplating a stretch of it. I scraped the green lacquer off to reveal the damage plainly and some clean copper on either end of it, then drilled two small holes in the board and jumpered it with a short piece of wire, soldered in. Works fine now.
About as much work as splicing in a switch from another car, and no guarantees come with a junkyard sourced switch, 9-5s having a few years and miles on them too these days.
