If the example above was used, I'd take out not only the commas,
but the last "and":

Attach the wires in the following order:

1. Red
2. Green
3. Blue and yellow
4. Brown

And assuming the order was relevant, I'd number the items rather
that bullet (like Calvin, I like verbing nouns) them.

Otherwise, I'd say:

Attach the following wires:

- red
- green
- blue and yellow
- brown
