Bath fan drawing DC power?

I have a 61 Flying Cloud and I'm trying to track down a DC power drain. This fan doesn't work I think but I can't figure out how you would turn it on. There was a lamp pull cord on the counter when I got it. I can't figure out where the "on" switch is or where a broken chain pull would have gone. Any help is appreciated.

The broken chain pull should go to the kitchen fan.
I think the roof vents had transformers that allowed you to switch from 120v to 12v. The fan is 12 volt, the transformer steps it down.

And sometimes the fan lid was spring loaded and had a pin switch which turned it on when the lid was allowed to raise. The switch was out of sight up on top. But honestly, at that time many variations of equipment were used and what I am saying might be totally out to lunch.

(I had a dog and his name was...) BINGO! That is exactly how it works. I would have never thought of that. I found the switch outside under the cover along with the broken spring. Gonna take it apart tomorrow and test it. Thanks for the advice!!!!

Well I still haven't figured out the power drain but on the bright side I fixed my bath fan.
