Hello, My name is ***** ***** I am a different Expert.
The main Ignition wire in your car is in the ignition harness underneath the driver's side dash and is a heavy gauge + Blue wire (always test using a multi-meter regardless of if knowing the wire colors).
Your radio's switched accessory wire is + Yellow located in the stereo wiring harness.

Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question. If you are talking about the ignition wires from the ignition harness, the yellow is actually going to be to the vats system so do not touch the yellow wire. The wiring plug will come out of the ignition cylinder and you can test it from there. Just unplug it from the ignition coil and pull it out and want to work on it. The excess rewire their will be read I believe that there are several of them so you still have to test for one that turns on when turning the ignition. You can do this with a small probe which is a very simple and inexpensive tool.
