This sounds much like bad connections somewhere, and possibly at the battery. Is the battery fully charged and always starts well? Are all body grounds clean and tight? You are losing juice somewhere. Can you use jumper wires and amp gauge to test at the flasher?
The orange wire from the Sony is the illumination wire, 12 volts put to this wire will dim the display on the stereo. The Jeep's BLUE/RED wire should have that function. Use a test light or multi meter to check for 12 volts + on that wire when the park lights are turned on.
The stereo will still function perfectly without the connection, just won't have the auto-dim feature.
Had the same problem with my TT Roadster after giving it a jump. They dont tell you this but there is a fuse on the back of the stereo that goes out, that's the fuse that needs to be replaced. I just took it to a local car stereo shop (because they were the only one's to have to tools to take the remove the radio from the dash) and had them replace it, it cost me.....$10 and i was out of there in 10 minutes.
