Hello. My name is***** will be assisting you. The B terminal is red or red/with purple stripe, The I terminal is purple and the S terminal is yellow/red. Do you have a volt meter?

And what color is accessories. Yes I do
Expert:  Tan replied 2 years ago.
The accessory will be the only color left. Different manufacturers use a different color. The accessory is not part of the engine wiring. Check voltage on the red wire going to the key switch. If no voltage check the voltage at the engine circuit breaker. Post back with findings.
