So you didn't buy the harness that you wire into the factory plug and you do not have a meter or test light?
oh, ok... so just find 12v constant. There should be plenty under the dash, that yellow wire is only the memory so the radio doesnt lose its settings.
Correct. Just hook the yellow to the red source for testing.
Yes... to rule out the radio needing the memory to see 12v just tie it into the red wire for a test.

If the radio powers up ur good, if not you have two problems
Um... yes...
