Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You don't need a wiring diagram. You connect the leads to R & W on the thermostat. The colors are usually red & white with red to R but it doesn't matter in most cases.
