A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.'  These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.

2005 ford freestar. sometimes the cruise works sometimes it doesn't


Could be any number of issues? Can you check for applicable trouble codes, relating to cruise control? Some of the national brand autostores will check codes for free.
With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing, or you can't find anything. Do you want to check voltage and ground circuit for your cruise control, meaning, check wire circuits using wiring diagrams?
Intermittent issues can be a pain to track.

How do you remove the radio from a 2005 Ford Freestar?


You have to purchase a tool to remove it. they are "U" shaped They are inexpensive. there are two of them, they go into the two holes on each side of the radio. push them until you hear a click, then usually you can pull the radio out with them. sometimes they need help, use a screwdriver and gently pry it out.
