I don't have diagrahm, but I can tell you basically how it is.
There is a yellow wire comming from the back of the ignition switch. When the switch is turned to START current goes from the white wire going to the ign. switch to the yellow one. Current then goes to the starter relay through a yellow(I think it is yellow) wire. It is the smaller wire. The power for the starter motor itself goes directly to it from the battery and through the relay.
What problems are you having with the starter motor? Check for current in the smaller wire that goes to the starter when the switch is turned to the START pos. I can look at my car to see what the wire looks like exactly. Hope this helps some.
