4 wires are in place under the current light. Black, Red, White, Bare. There are two switches on the wall. In the cieling fan there are 3 wires blue, white, green. How do I wire this to control the light and fan on seperate switches on the wall.

Yes that is right there is a black wire.

Does the Black From Junction Box go with Black on Fan?

Does Red go with Blue on Fan?

Does White go with White?
