    If the Mk2 ignition is similar to the Mk1 wiring. The yellow wire should be for a radio, as If my memory serves me right thats what the spare yellow terminal in a Mk1 is for, someone please correct me if i'm wrong on that.

    Double check using a multimeter if its a switched ignition source (comes on when key is turned to accessory).
