This sounds like the headlight cutout relay, which kills the headlights
when the starter button is depressed to maximize battery voltage at
starting.  My book shows blue and blue w/white.  If you pull this relay,
your headlights should either not work or not cutout on start.  Hard to
tell for sure from the diagram.  This relay is described as one of four
"under the instrument pack" and has a "blue tag on the relay cable".
The starter relay itself is going to be in the shortest path from the 
battery to the motor.
