After hooking motor up to 12v it appears to work fine.

Thinking switch now, how can i stimulate a connection at the switch end?

If you have a 'Auto Probe' the 12V output at the switch should give you a continuity signal, show that terminal 12V and the motor should operate, you should continuity on two terminals one for 'up' one for 'down'.

If you haven't got a 'Auto Probe' then a piece of, preferably fused, insulated wire can also be used.
