Need 2008 honda rubicon wiring diagram

My '08 has had a couple of electrical issues.

First off, when it rains, my LED tail lights come on (with the ignition off). So I've got water getting into the harness or a connection somewhere.

Second, recently it has failed to start. Not a battery power issue, as lights are bright, winch works great, just absolutely nothing when the starter button is pressed. Yes it was in neutral, and yes I tried pulling in the brakes also.

No problem, right, I'll just use the rope, still no start, leading me to believe there was no spark either, since she always fires up easily. I haven't bothered to actually pull the plug and check for spark yet, waiting for some nicer weather.

So, can anybody send me a nice, color wiring schematic for my bike? I've already downloaded a .pdf service manual, however the wiring schematic is all on one page, not color, and way, way too poor quality to read.

If anyone has the schematic, PM me and I'll give my e-mail address.

Well, after tearing the front plastic off the bike, I found water in a round connector with four wires in it. It was black and dusty (the water) and had rotted off one of the wires with the current feeding through to my LED tail lights. Replaced the female blade connector, filled the whole connector with good quality dielectric grease and sealed the top up with brush on electrical tape.

Also, I've got a copy of the wiring diagram, so if anybody needs it in the future PM me.
