MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Connecting a radio
|Sounds like the yellow wire is for the memory and the red is for turning the radio on with the ignition switch .So its the red to the w/g wire and the yellow to a permanent live fused supply you could use the supply to interior light (purple wire)|

|As Mark says, plus orange/white to the panel lights - red/white.|
|As I recall|
Red= 12 volt power on
Black = ground
orange = memory
Yellow = radio ilumination
Purple = Amplifier turn on
Blue = Power anntenna
That said... at some point inbthe last few years after market radios started using there own color codes and are not generic....so google your radio for correct color code wiring
