The battery light means that it is not charging. Likely that your alternator is shot.

Recently replaced my battery on my 2010 thunderbird. Now check engine light is on. How do I clear it

Any code's stored ? Or didn't you check ? Check engine light on code or code's stored . After replacing or disconnecting a battery in a ford vehicle will store a P1000 code. This isn't a problem just means the vehicle lost power, this doesn't normally turn on the check engine light. Run by a auto part's an have them check code's . If none are shown they can turn off the light . Do you have autozone , advance auto parts near you ?

Car won't start. Lights and radio flickered while driving for a couple days then car wouldnt start. New alt and good battery. Tried to jump and lights come on but radio doesnt. Theres no starter click

Check the fusible link wire first.

Then check battery voltage.

Then check the cleanliness and contact surfaces and the tightness of the battery cables. Do the same on the starter solenoid connections/wires.

This is going to sound kinda stupid.
But have you tried dry gas?
A lot of times when you get moisture in the gas it does what yours is doing.
I know you replaced the pump but did you take out the old gas?

My check engine light is on, what could be the problem? I recently replaced the battery w/ a brand new battery.

The check engine light is on because the engine management system has detected a fault, you need to pull the code(s) and follow that they indicate...
Battery would have little to do with the light on condition, but removal of the battery may erase codes... Find the error and attend to that.

2000 V-6 Isuzu Amigo recent new battery recent new alternator new fan belt new pulley great for 6mos, now doesn't lights, nothing

have your battery tested and charged/replaced as neccessary. test your charging system for 13.5- 14.7 volts. i know they are fairly new but electrical componenets can fail in half a second. dont rely on them being new. check them anyways.

Change or recharge the battery. Repair any exposed wires (insulation broken or worn off) on wires in affected circuit that may be shorting out and drawing current from the battery.
