Hmmm Learn something new every day. Didn't know Ford had resurrected the Galaxy line, let alone put it on a van. Oh well. If Ford were kind, you should be able to access the back of the tail light assembly from the inside. There should be access panels, one behind each tail light assembly. Your owners manual should have the information. If not, a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual that covers the make/model/year will certainly lead you through the procedure.
Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John
If this is a red flashing light beneath the temperature guage it means that you do not have enough coolant. Top up the large white ball shaped reservior at the right hand side of the engine compartment just behind the battery.
Have the battery checked. You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid. If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also. A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.
Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this). If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
when you have a dead battery and jump start you half to drive the vehicle for 10 to20 miles to allow the altinator to recharge the battery. if this dont work then i would have the altinator checked to see if it is charging ,your local auto parts store will do this for free
