Light install

I have 4 black wires, all capped off, 1 going no where. 3 white wires capped off and 1 yellow wire, no bare Copper. How do I install the wires to put in a new fixture?

Try black to yellow, white to whites.
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
