Exmark 5 prong ignition switch wiring

Ok, my mower last year stopped running and i finally started to mess with it, i tried a new ignition switch today after replacing the one i had before, anyways to make a short story long if your looking at it so its like

- -

(By the way the top connector i drew should be in the center not offset to the left, the computer just made it that way)

what should the colors of the wires be?

Also i forgot to mention i most have incorrectly hooked up the white wire that goes from the switch to what i thought had to go to the positive lead, it smoked and caught on fire but only AFTER it started running. I think im on the right track but who knows...
