    Try http://www.tacklereviewer.com/freebies/tracker-boats-wiring-diagram and see if it helps. You will not find a schematic for any boat, just a color code for wiring. You may have to search just boat wiring. If you post good pictures a number of people can help just by looking at the layout. A boat wiring color code will not give you the color code for the motor you will need to find a color code site for the outboard. The starter switch if I am understanding you correctly you insert the key, push in for choke, and then turn and start. At a minimum on the dash should be Navigation lights (running/off/anchor) and one for the live well.

    Michael, as you know one is ignition, I have 2 for live well, circulate & aerator, one will fill well (put plug in bottom) the other just adds oxy by circulating. The other is the navigation lights. The one next to the ignition switch on mine is the bilge pump. I'm not counting ignition as a switch. So I have a total of 4 + ignition.... I have newer tracker but they should be about the same.
