Use a handheld meter to determine if you have (+) or (-) at the key switch.

I hooked up to the blue wire and worked great. I also hooked up an inline switch in case I wanted to drive the cart with no radio or lights.

The yellow (activation) wire would connect to the keyswitch #2 terminal with the blue wire in the diagram below. You can confirm this with your DMM. What? No DMM? Now is a very good time to get one and become familiar with basic voltage readings - every cart owner should have one
