They should rotate up when you turn the lights on with the dashboard switch. Sounds like the motors need to be repaired or replaced, but first check that they are getting power to them from the switch. If you need to drive the car at night, you can manually turn them to the up position. Open the hood and each light should have a knob right next to its motor. Turn the knob a few times until the linkage has the light in the up position. They will stay there and the light will turn off and on with the dash switch.
