Ruud Achiever 80 won't run

Ruud Achiever 80 furnace/A/C won't start. Nothing works, including the blower. I found that the regular light-style external switch in the attic that supplies power had been brushed into a position halfway between On-Off while moving junk around. I turned the switch ON, checked the breakers, but the system is completely inoperative. The thermostat clicks, still can't turn fan or A/C or heat on.
Do I need to reset the unit somehow? I can't see how to open the side panels on the furnace box near where the wiring and 24VDC line enter.

That switch may be broken. They fail from old age too. Need to see if you are getting 110 volts thru it with a voltmeter or electrician/tech buddy.

Also check if there is a low voltage fuse that is open in the furnace
