Replaced cracked trackpad, now backlit keys aren't turning on.

I had a cracked trackpad and replaced it yesterday. Just noticed today that the backlit keys aren't lighting up anymore. Suggestions? Is there anyway I left something disconnected? I disconnected a number of ribbon cables in order to lift up the logic board enough to reach certain out of reach screws.
