Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. The yellow wire is the receiver antenna and shouldn't have been connected to any other wires. It is very well possible that the receiver is no longer operable due to the midwife.
New one on me. This unit changed the color code, must have ran out of black wire. From the diagram, you had it connected properly. Is the pullchan switch in the on position?
I though of one more thing. If that remote pair doesn't have dip switches, you need to sync it by holding either the light or fan button while pushing the on button. That should have been in the instructions. Check to verify and try it.
