Don't know exactly for your car but starter motors usually have a large thick cable direct from the positive side of the battery to the starter motor drive. Another thick cable from the motor body to an earth (or negative) point on the engine or car body and a smaller / thinner wire to the starter solenoid which comes from your ignition switch.
