There should be 2 fuses under the cover. The one with the blue wire going to it is for up the green is for down. You can pull the one and put it into the other to see if it is out. The fuses are about and inch by inch. Good luck.

They're actually called relays, and are typically found on the RH side of the motor, behind a plastic cover. Follow the blue / green wires from the switch in the lower cowl (on the outside of the motor) to the relays.

They look like this:

balsa's correct, swap the relays and see if the problem becomes that the motor won't go up, but will go down. Then head to the dealer and get a new one... it's a pretty easy swap.
