The easest way to find the starter is to open the hood and have some one crank the engine while you watch. If all else fails follow the positive cable from you battery it may go to the silonoid on the fire wall but the positive cable from the silnoid will go to the starter hope this helps

Had similiar problem on a old Austin Alegro 25 years ago.
Starter had worn wire insulation. Used industrial yelow sticker foil on that.
Fuse blow in sane curve highway every time. Car was repainted and wire harness reinstalled unprofessionally previous owner.
Crawled half a day every square mm and yep a litle broke insulation on a positive cable grounding to chassis an blowing the fuse.

Make sure you have voltage on the big red wire. Check for votage at the small wire when in the start position. If you do not have power at the small wire check the neutral safety switch or clutch switch for power in the start position. Sounds like one of those is your problem. You didn't state if you had an auto or manual trans. Good luck.

if u can gain access to the ignition switch wiring use a testlight and probe each wire while turning the ignition at start position.one of these wires shld have power during starting position and release it again to confirm.this wire goes directly to the trasmission multi lever position swicht (mlp).this MLP is mounted just outside the transmission shifting lever ganged together.Trace the corresponding return wire using the testlight. You may need someone to help you do the job.The return wire usually go to a relay on your fuse box on the engine compartment.Then from relay to the starter.
