Q: Can a dimmer switch from a 1998 Buick Regal be used for the 2002 model? on 2002 Buick Regal

After buying an '02 Buick regal at a car auction, I've found I need a new dimmer switch. Without it, my cruise, headlights and wipers are all nonfunctional. Problem is most shops are asking for $300+ bucks for it, and I can't quite afford that. However, the place that held the auction also has a lot filled with junkers, and they have a '98 model that they say I can take the switch from for cheap.

I just need to know if I were to pull the dimmer switch from this '98 if it would even work for my '02. It'd be saving me a ton of time and money and I'd really appreciate it.
