00 ford focus wagon with 2.0L DOHC Zetec Auto.

Recently I had noticed that the big gauge red wire coming off the battery terminal has started to melt, and cause me troubles when trying to start the car.

My questions are, what size is the wire? Maybe 12 gauge wire?

And does it just go to the starter, or a solenoid first?

Sorry for the ease of questions, but it's winter here in CT, and my garage is not accessible right now for me to look at this myself.

Thanks,

Dj

It goes to the starter and then to the Alternator.

It's piggy-backed on the starter.
