HELP! radio only works when i turn the dome over ride, and runing lights on!

what do i do? i got a 1995 jeep xj sport, and for some reason i got a radio and put it in, but its used, and older, but it is installed correctly, and it wont work unless i turn the light knob to dome over ride, it works on runing lights or head lights, could it be the head unit? or a wire in the dash board? PLZ HELP! most greatfull,

Sounds like you got the power hooked up to the "Illumination" wire for the stock radio.
