Whoever wired it did not do it properly. Should be a 12v ignition and 12v "accessory" wire. The accessory wire provides 12v at all times for memory and clock function.

This could also be a symptom of a poor ground or loose battery terminal. Check the wiring behind the head unit first. If that checks out then start looking under the hood.

Following link is description of wire function and ID for radio on 1992 XJ. Very helpful when connecting aftermarket radios. Especially when previous owner cut all the wires to stock radio connector rather than just plug in an adapter. https://www.the12volt.com/installbay...tail/1151.html
