Need help with Honda 3011 mower

Recently I have been having a hard time starting the mower. I have found that wiggling the wires that go to the combination relay mounted behind the battery helped me get it started. My friend came over and suggested we work on the connectors that go into the relay box. Now I am needing some help from the forum. We had made a drawing of the wire positions and colors before he took the wires out of the connectors, but the mower won't start at all now. I really need help to confirm the correct wire colors and positions in the two connectors. There is a 6 wire connector and a 4 wire connector.

The two connectors are side by side on the bottom of the black combination relay box mounted just behind the battery. effectively the wires are arranged in two rows of 5 each. I'm hoping that someone could look at their 3011 mower and tell me the colors (like green w/blue stripe, black w/yellow stripe, etc.) of the wires when looking at the mounted relay from left to right for the first row of 5 wires closest to the battery, then for the 5 wires in the second row behind them closest to the metal plate that the relay is mounted on.

Actually one or more photos of the wires going into the connectors would be even better. Can anyone help me please?

I was able to correct the wiring and have gotten the mower to start (yeah!).

When looking at the relay box as mounted, the wires can be viewed as being in two rows of 5 (disregarding the connectors).

First row closest to the battery from left to right: 1. black/yellow stripe, 2. black/blue stripe, 3. black, 4. green/blue stripe, 5. black/red stripe.

Second row from left to right: 6. black/white stripe, 7. green/yellow stripe, 8. green/red stripe, 9. white/black stripe, 10. green/black stripe.

Here is an ASCII sketch I made of the wire positions in the connectorsas viewed while looking at the face of the connector with the locking clip or notch is on top and with the wires coming out the back.
