You can actually make it move using a 9volt battery but it will be slower than if you where using the correct 12volts. Attach the battery with jumper wires one way to make it go up and switch contacts to make it go down. Assuming that the fuse is good and the wiring is fine then the switch is probably bad and needs replaced.
