Best Answer

From the battery to the starter or a power distribution centre, red is power and black is ground. After the starter or PDC, the wire will change colors and sizes, some have stripes, some don't and sizes vary. It's all designed to help mechanics find problems by crossreferencing the wiring in the car with what they see in the service manual.
